    Nick found his way to architecture via a winding path: studying physics as an undergraduate at Creighton University, working in commercial construction, spending a year as an AmeriCorps volunteer in a nonprofit afterschool program, and working on hazardous waste issues at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

    After earning a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Michigan, Nick joined a nonprofit design collaborative in Omaha, Nebraska, where he designed and built a seasonal streetscape project, helped conceptualize and throw a 500-person food and design event on a bridge over the interstate, and participated in NEA-funded research looking at the land use history of the suburban-rural edge of Omaha. He also worked as a freelance designer, providing graphic design services and producing creative reuse products.

    Michael received his Bachelors of Science and Masters of Architecture from Kent State University. During his time at Kent State he had the opportunity to study abroad for a semester in Florence, Italy, where he fostered an interest in sketching and illustration.

    Originally from the South Hills, Michael has started to get involved in the Pittsburgh community through organizations such as the Young Architects Forum and A.C.E Mentor. A.C.E. Mentor is a program which gives high school students the opportunity to explore careers in Architecture, Construction, and Engineering through related activities facilitated by professionals working in related fields. Michael pursued architecture because of his participation in the program as a high school student, and is now involved as a mentor. Michael looks forward to furthering his commitment to the community and the city, as he reacquaints himself with Pittsburgh.

    Besides sketching, Michael enjoys seeing the world through photography, an interest he has had since a young age. This love of photography and an appreciation for composition has led to an interest in digital renderings. He also enjoys wood working and furniture making, a hobby he hopes to further explore in the future.

    Rothschild Doyno Collaborative project architect Bryan Thompson has returned to Pittsburgh after exploring design, construction, and the rivers of the Pacific Northwest for two decades.

    Thompson spent his time in Oregon as a whitewater raft guide, a graduate student at Portland State University, and working for design firms dedicated to healthy positive outcomes. Bryan led rafting crews on overnight expeditions, joined design-build and maker projects at Portland State University, and worked to achieve district goals for public school clients. These adventures and accomplishments came with lessons of resiliency, sustainability, leadership, materiality, social engagement, teamwork, and cultural meaning that have become his professional foundation.

    Thompson plans to get involved with volunteer opportunities at local parks and river conservation groups and to engage in opportunities on his community planning or sustainability commission board to support resilient, productive community goals.

    Bryan earned a Bachelor of Science Architecture from the University of Maryland, College Park, and a Master of Architecture from Portland State University.

    Emily Ussia graduated with a Master of Architecture and a focus in urban design from the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative branch of Kent State University. She also received her Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree from Kent State with a minor in construction management, aiming to better understand her collaborators on the construction side of design.

    Emily pursued the graduate program with a focus on urban design due to her growing interest in community-centered design and the unique conditions of the urban fabric. While she pursues architectural licensure, Emily aspires to create work that not only transforms the physical environment through the design process, but also the lives of the clients and those who live in the surrounding communities. She believes that designers have a unique role and responsibility to create positive change and ensure that everyone’s voice is heard in the design process.

    Outside of the office, Emily enjoys biking, drawing (if with colored pencils she will be using Prismacolor pencils, the supreme colored pencil), and spending time with her family and friends.
