Trevor Watson graduated from the University of Arizona with honors before moving to New York City. While in New York he completed numerous projects with Robert Marino Architects and Rockwell Group. He continued developing his own research, eventually leading to his teaching appointment at Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. During his time at Columbia he developed and taught two courses, Transitional Geometries and Detail: Craft in Practice, which he co-taught with UArizona alumnus and architect Paul Sanderson. The work done while at GSAPP was widely published in the yearly ABSTRACT.

After leaving New York, Trevor worked in Stockholm, Sweden for the industrial design firm Kram Wiesshaar, where he was able to explore a different scale of design and attention to detail. His time in Europe eventually led to another teaching opportunity, a collaborative summer workshop with Zurich-based architect Baier Bischofberger, ETH Zurich, ETH Complex Material, and Columbia GSAPP. 

After leaving Sweden, Trevor eventually returned to Tucson, Arizona, his hometown, where he continues to research, design and explore educational opportunities.
