Brandon Bibby merged his passion with his profession through architecture by using his understanding of movement from years of dance to shape the way he creates.
“One of my main interests is taking my dance experience and combining it with my architectural experience and creating spaces that react with everyday movements of the body,” Bibby said.
Bibby graduated from the University of Arkansas’ Fay Jones School of Architecture & Design and is currently an intern architect at WER Architects Planners.
His career in architecture has given Bibby a unique way to get involved with the community. As a member of studioMAIN, a nonprofit made up of architects, engineers and designers, Bibby helped organize the PopUp in the Rock event at Stifft Station last year as the co-chair.
For one month, small businesses were allowed to use a storefront for free to test their business operations. StudioMAIN implemented a “road diet” to slow down traffic in front of the storefronts and to widen the southern sidewalk.
Of the seven small businesses that participated, five have gone brick and mortar, and several of the vacant storefronts at Stifft Station have tenants.
