Tymur (Tym) Shymov joined the Fielding International (FI) team in 2019 shortly after earning his master’s degree in architecture. He is of Russian descent and came to the US in his teens. Since playing with building blocks as a child, Tym knew that the pursuit of a career in architecture was in his future. His grandfather was an engineer and he saw his first construction site with him. He believes that his interest was sparked by this experience.
He was drawn to FI because of its passion towards reinventing the design language of schools rather than like other firms that seem to do generic work. He is excited that the people at FI all believe in what they do and that they have a real mission to make education better for everyone. He believes that he would have been a better student had he been taught in an environment such as those created by FI.
Tym sees every new task at FI as an opportunity to learn from and broaden his understanding of how space can change individuals and their ability to learn for the better.
