Michael Salka is a diversely ambitious young creator who in less than 30 years of life has built projects spanning three continents and remains committed to solving the unprecedented challenges of a globalized, majority-urban, and climatically unstable world using the equally unprecedented potential of big data and digital technologies. In May of 2014 he completed a Bachelor of Environmental Design with a Major in Architecture from the University of Colorado at Boulder, earning magna cum laude interdisciplinary honors and departmental special honors.

While an undergraduate, he won multiple competitions organized by The American Institute of Architecture Students, led a team of Engineers Without Borders through the conception and construction of rainwater catchment systems in rural Rwanda, defended an independently researched thesis regarding emerging parametric urban design tools and published an environmental justice study informed by geographic information systems in the Natural Hazards Center Journal.
