Ryan Campbell is a native Texan with a love for people, places, and cultures. He graduated from the E. Fay Jones School of Architecture at the University of Arkansas in 2012 and is passionate about architecture and its relation to the people and communities it affects. He believes that the architecture of the past tells a story of culture and its people and that contemporary projects today should do the same. When he can, he finds the time to draw, sketch, and paint the historic places he has visited, because he is fascinated with the principles they have to teach. In 2011 he received a grant fellowship to study the architecture of the southwestern United States in an effort to reinterpret the lessons of the past for today. In 2012 he was a part of a design-build project of a modern home in downtown Little Rock, AR. He has also spent time in Mexico and Africa studying existing urban relationships related to housing. Unrelated to architecture, Ryan loves life, spending time with his family, reading, hiking, camping, and climbing.
