Keith approaches architecture with a disciplined understanding of its historical and theoretical foundations. He endeavors to understand the full breadth of design challenges and explores them with an unbiased approach to how the solution should or should not be informed by convention. Through focused intellectual engagement, project constraints of site, program, budget, codes, and schedule become opportunities for finding the best solution. Within the studio as well as through published articles and his active role as an architectural professor, Keith initiates dialogue about individual identity, inevitability in design, values and meaning, and building traditions. His professional work includes design, documentation, and construction administration of institutional and commercial projects.
