JuneJuly is Kyle Hovenkotter and Jake Matatyaou, a design studio based in Brooklyn, NY and Los Angeles, CA. JuneJuly stages experiences (spaces, installations, things, ideas) that go beyond what’s seen, to produce effects that must be heard, felt, tasted, and lived.



Kyle Hovenkotter is a designer and educator in Brooklyn, New York. He received an M. Arch from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation in 2012 where he was the recipient of the AIA Henry Adams Medal, and a B.A. in Architectural Studies from the University of Washington in 2008.

Hovenkotter is a founding principal of the design practice JuneJuly, and holds teaching appointments at the Pratt Institute, Columbia University, Barnard College, and the Cooper Union. He is the 2017 Pratt Design Lab fellow. His work is concerned with the impact of globalization, climate change, and digital technology on the human experience. He produces ideas, spaces, and things.

Previously, Hovenkotter has worked with Smith-Miller + Hawkinson Architects, the Network Architecture Lab, the Urban Landscape Lab, NBBJ, and Parc Office as a designer, strategist, and futures thinker for global brands and institutions.
