The Understanding Group • Grand Rapids, Michigan

Inspired by IA pioneer Richard Saul Wurman’s call to practice information architecture as “an understanding business,” Dan Klyn co-founded The Understanding Group with Bob Royce in 2011 and appears to be on some sort of mission to co-opt architectural thinking from the built environment and interpret it for use in the design of places made of information.

In addition to his duties as structural design practice lead at TUG, Klyn works as an editorial assistant to Mr. Wurman, teaches an IA course at the University of Michigan School of Information and has served as a board member of the Information Architecture Institute.
