At Campo Architects, we have some outstanding employees on our team. Each month, we’ll be turning the spotlight on one of our team members responsible for bringing our designs to life. Get to know Bryan Bradshaw, an Architectural Designer.
1. Who influenced your decision to pursue a career in architecture?
My high school nurse gave me my first architecture book about Antoni Gaudí after she saw some of the art that I was making in my sculpture classes. I had very little knowledge of architecture and she opened my eyes to a wide range of possibilities of things that can be achieved through architectural design.
2. What is your favorite part about your job?
Learning little details about the differences in the layout and functions of spaces from brand to brand. Since starting to work at Campo, I now look at hospitality buildings from a different perspective. As a hotel guest, your experience is curated in many ways depending on your reason for entering (just for the bar, overnight stay, meeting, fitness, pool, etc). I have gained more appreciation for certain design decisions that I notice in the hotels that I engage with.
3. Do you have any hidden talents?
I can play the trumpet and guitar.
4. What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Playing soccer, rugby, and metal fabrication/sculpture projects.
5. How do you think architecture will change in the next 10 years?
I think that in the next 10 years architecture will be even more focused on sustainable design. The construction/building industry heavily impacts our environment, so I think that designers and architects will be encouraged even more to design responsibly with respect to that impact on how the decisions we make on a singular building affect a larger contextual environment.
