Bachelor of Architecture, 2007
University of Arkansas
Ryan joined Marlon Blackwell Architects in early 2019 after spending 12 years practicing high-performance design in Kansas City with firms BNIM and Gould Evans. His time at BNIM included a 4-year collaboration with Steven Holl Architects on the Princeton University Lewis Center for the Arts, where Ryan played a leading role in the design and construction of a highly sophisticated building envelope.
Ryan became a licensed Architect in 2010, and his experience ranges from single family residences to large office buildings. Over the years, he has developed a focus on building envelope design and construction. One of Ryan’s greatest sources of inspiration is how buildings respond to the effects of wind, water, and sunlight, and how these elements can be leveraged to elevate design.
