Rex Tzen

Designer

Rex Tzen joined Davis Square Architects in 2016 as a designer. Having interned at several architectural firms, including two in Japan, he brings experience with surveying and construction administration, commercial projects, housing renovations, structural and accessibility studies, as well as schematic and presentation design. Also a skilled woodworker and modeler, he has created architectural models for publications, exhibitions and presentations.

Among Rex’s current projects are 206 West Broadway, a new affordable development located in South Boston directly next to the Broadway Red Line MBTA stop. Transforming two underutilized vacant lots into much-needed affordable housing for the South Boston community, the mixed-use building will consist of 16 units with ground-floor retail space.

Rex graduated summa cum laude from Georgia Institute of Technology with his Bachelor of Science in Architecture, and recently received his master in architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He has also taught at the Boston Architectural College’s Summer Academy Studio. Rex is an avid volunteer at both his alma mater and numerous other organizations, spending much of his time helping those in need.
