Randy Brown is an artist/architect who makes his living creating remarkable designs that help his clients achieve their business and personal objectives. His expertise falls into three project types: cultural, dwelling and identity. He finds gratification through pro bono work, such as designing a renovation for an existing Boys Club in Sioux City, Iowa.
Also known for his artwork, which consists of hand crafted graphite and gesso drawings, art installations, furniture/sculpture, films, hand made books, t shirts and jewelry. Many of his pieces have been exhibited and are for sale in the web store.
In 1998, Brown created WORKSHOP, a 12 week summer college architecture student paid internship program. The selected students spend two weeks designing a project and ten weeks building it. Past projects have been an art gallery and office space for non profits, furniture, office spaces, houses and art installations. Each year Brown is in search of worthy organizations and not for profits that could benefit from creative minds and inexpensive labor.
Since 2001, Brown has been a partner in Quantum Quality Real Estate, which creatively develops real estate and owns it for investment. The company has developed and constructed 12 projects and Brown served as the Architect and general contractor on many of them.
Also known for his ideas about practice and design, after a decade of working as an Architect, Brown started blogging on his website. He first started off just publishing his designs, but as time wore on he started blogging about his other main interests: creativity and marketing.
Despite his flourishing practice, Brown finds time to promote art and design education at the local, state, and national levels. Randy held the Hyde Chair of Excellence in 2003 at the University of Nebraska and has been a adjunct professor and guest critic at numerous Universities. He was a 2001 National AIA Honor Award for Interior Architecture juror, and has been a juror for numerous state and regional AIA Honor Awards programs.
He has been constantly engaged as a public speaker, giving talks throughout the US, about his projects: real estate development and marketing.
