BRIC is a community-focused architecture firm that works alongside students, educators, and local stakeholders to engage in authentic, value-driven conversations. Building Relationships and Inspiring Communities are more than the words of our firm name, they are central to how we approach every project. Our work is inherently collaborative; we champion processes that encourage diverse voices – especially those of the historically underserved – to come to the table, share their thoughts, and co-create comprehensive design solutions. This approach to educational planning, design, and community engagement reflects our commitment to dismantling biases that pervade the architecture industry. We partner with our clients to examine long-standing assumptions, reimagine existing buildings, and plan for innovative new facilities that inspire a more humane and just world. Together, we’re designing safe, equitable, and sustainable environments that empower learners to change the world.
