Edward Richardson Brya, AIAPrincipal, President, 3GD inc.

Rich Brya, AIA, is the principal architect at 3GD inc. in Rogers. Since 1997, Brya and his firm have maintained a critical design practice that strives to create place-specific projects uniquely suited to their clients’ needs. His work is a continuing investigation in the ways of building and the ability to create meaningful spaces through tectonic manipulations. 3GD inc. constructs many of its projects as a design/build practice, giving Brya and his collaborators an opportunity to carry the design ethos of a project through to the smallest details. The rigorous, careful detailing of the work has helped Brya and 3GD inc. win several AIA awards.

Brya has lived, studied and worked on both coasts and in the middle, and studied and taught in Ceurnavaca, Mexico. He earned his Master of Architecture degree at the University of Washington, and has a Bachelor of Science in design from Clemson University. In addition to his work in practice, Brya has taught at the University of Washington and most recently at the Fay Jones School of Architecture at the University of Arkansas.
