Ryan Bussard

AIA, LEED AP
Principal, Design Director, Seattle

Born and raised in the Midwest, Ryan was introduced to art and architecture by his grandparents’ frequent trips to Europe. This dichotomy of urbanism and pastoral landscapes inspired him to wonder at an early age how architecture, space, and landscape interact to create the cities, places, and environments people inhabit.

Ryan’s designs continue to be influenced by these early questions and by his client’s visions and aspirations. Drawn by the natural beauty of the Northwest, and the opportunities within a rapidly growing Seattle, Ryan and his family moved to the city to become one of the core team members for the once newly opened Seattle studio. He continues to balance both passions—visiting cities and cultural institutions around the world with his family, and in the Northwest—hiking and taking bicycle trips to explore the landscape.

"I am inspired to create places, rather than isolated buildings, that inspire and connect each of us."
