Timothy Yankama


Timothy ‘Ty’ Yankama LEED® AP (BD+C) has been with Davis Partnership since 2015. He is part of the Healthcare Studio and has contributed to projects for Veterans Affairs, SCL Health, Grand River Health District and Kaiser Permanente. Before Davis, he was an art director, filmmaker and entrepreneur. He is an alumnus of The University of Illinois and The University of Colorado, Denver, and is a member of Tau Sigma Delta. In graduate school, he researched improving patient and provider relationships through design. He believes in the capacity of design to elevate the human experience in tangible and ethereal ways. He also holds a Master of the Arts in Philosophy.

Most nights and weekends Ty is working on restoring a midcentury modern house, or he is biking, attempting to play ice hockey, or working on some unreasonably-sized art project.
