Christopher Brown



“A building is not truly sustainable unless durability, economy, and resilience are considered. Often the best design is the simplest and sometimes the greenest building is the one that already exists.”

With a passion for sustainable design and historic renovations, Chris served as the project architect of the Grant High School Modernization project in Portland and continues to work on educational projects. His academic background in philosophy and math inspires his approach to architecture which emphasizes a thoughtful and pragmatic path to problem solving that strives to synthesize multiple objectives to serve a larger design vision.

Chris holds a Master of Architecture from University of Washington and a Bachelor of Arts from Swarthmore College. He is a registered architect in Oregon.
