Jonthan Linkus grew up on the road between family fragments in Northern Nevada and Orange County, California which instilled him with an innate passion and curiosity for the American West of Eastern California. His early interest in the way infrastructure unintentionally creates a sense of place at an inter-regional scale across subtle thresholds in the California hinterland. His undergraduate study of art and engineering focused on the sustainable potential of mid-century modern architecture. For his Master of Architecture in Urban Design (Harvard), his thesis focused on the Los Angeles Aqueduct with a creative solution to very complex sites and intractable scenarios. Linkus is currently a project manager at RTKL.
