With a background in construction, Professor Wyllie went to art school planning to study furniture design but discovered architecture by attending a lecture on the Schroeder House in the Netherlands by Professor Han Schroeder who was the apprentice of the architect and furniture designer Gerrit Rietveld who designed the house. He then switched majors to Interior Design being taught and mentored by Professor Schroeder and other influential designers and architects. After graduation Professor Wyllie continued to practice carpentry while working as a project designer with several Washington DC area Architecture firms experiencing a range of practice from single and multi-family housing to Historic Preservation and Adaptive Reuse before the pursuit of his Master of Architecture degree at The Catholic University of America. Graduate School allowed him to leverage his art school training, construction and professional experience to study architecture at a mature level at various scales from Urban Planning, Landscape Design, Building Design, Interior Design and finally back again to Furniture. Professor Wyllie later served as Architect and Senior Architect for many years with the nationally known Interior Architecture firm Greenwell Geotz Architects and later with Little and Associates Architects working on many significant corporate public and private interior based projects. In 2002 Professor Wyllie started his own firm Paperspace Inc. after accepting the position as an Assistant Professor at his alma mater VCUarts teaching Interior and Furniture Design at the undergraduate and graduate level. While at VCUarts, Professor Wyllie developed an interest in Healthcare Design and created several Medical Design studios to focus and research on conceptual Health care environments ranging from pediatric to palliative care. In 2009 Professor Wyllie became a part time faculty member at The Catholic University School of Architecture choosing to teach Architecture at the freshman and sophomore level. Professor Wyllie is currently a Visiting Professor with the School of Architecture and continues to live and practice architecture in Virginia and has been married since 1990 and has 3 children and a dog.
