Brian Nguy is a Pacific Northwest native who developed an interest in community-based design while studying at the University of Oregon (M.Arch). He comes to architecture with a background in psychology (B.Arts) and a brief stint in healthcare, which helps ground his design approach with the human element. Through his experience in design-build and work as a planner on the Washington State Capitol Campus, he is passionate about how inclusive design and good policy can help catalyze resilient cities and communities. He enjoys working at multiple scales, from the urban down to a piece of furniture and is excited about actively engaging with the city through these various lenses. When time affords, you can find Brian in the kitchen working on his bread making or trying to center a ball of clay on his pottery wheel.
