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.
