Jake Matatyaou is a designer, writer, and educator. Matatyaou is a founding partner of JuneJuly, a design consultancy based in Los Angeles, CA, and Seattle, WA. Established by Matatyaou and Kyle Hovenkotter in 2014, JuneJuly is committed to expanding architecture to more than the design of buildings. Using architecture as a visceral mode of communication, JuneJuly explores the impact of globalization and networked technology on the spaces, places, and people of contemporary cities. Matatyaou’s work draws from interaction design, experience design, film, and music, to offer a renewed interest in the human body and its situation in the world. Before joining UCLA, Matatyaou was the Liberal Arts Coordinator and Design Studio Faculty at SCI-Arc.
