Senior Associate | Creative Director
After he received a degree in criminal justice, Bryan Archibald, Associate AIA, LEED AP wasn’t quite satisfied: he felt a strong need to better express his creativity. So he earned another degree, in architecture.
Design teams respect Bryan’s ability to ask questions that challenge convention. He’s not afraid to bend the “rules” of traditional design to spark conversations and change perspectives.
Bryan led nearly 400,000 square feet of additions and renovations to four schools in Galesburg Community Unit School District #205 to modernize the facilities and support a districtwide consolidation.
Among Bryan’s other achievements are the first LEED Gold certified community college maintenance building and a school addition that uses light shades and a shifting window rhythm to bring equal daylight to every classroom.
Evidence of Bryan’s passion for the design process can be found throughout his home: he has designed and built beds, bookshelves, chairs, desks, and artwork.
Bryan holds bachelor’s degrees in architecture and criminal justice from Southern Illinois University.
“Legat’s lead designer, Bryan Archibald, has been to the district well over a hundred times throughout the course of our massive facility renovation project that spans four buildings and will soon incorporate a fifth. Mr. Archibald has been integral to the success of all our projects. We couldn’t imagine the project being successful without his direct involvement every step of the way.” Dr. John Asplund, Superintendent, Galesburg Community Unit School District #205
