Travis Cook grew up in Colorado. After completing a BA in Architecture from Lehigh University, Cook returned to Colorado to team up with several childhood friends who were starting a company designing and selling locally made snow skis. Icelantic was born, and over the next five years Cook managed Design, Production and R&D for Icelantic’s award-winning line of skis (www.icelanticboards.com). Cook also designed and fabricated exhibit spaces and tradeshow booths and managed Icelantic’s art gallery, curating monthly shows featuring local and visiting snow industry artists.
In 2006 Cook left Colorado to continue his education at The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture. While in school, Cook worked as a Teaching and Research Assistant and conducted independent research focused on material, systems, and fabrication.
Since joining Murray Legge Architecture in 2013, Cook has collaborated on the design and fabrication of numerous installation projects including the Dallas Arboretum and Legge Lewis Legge's Waller Creek Conservancy project, "Light Bridge". Cook has launched a design and fabrication collaborative in East Austin, Cook Shop.
