More information


Randy Brown finished his studies with a Master of Architecture at the University of California (Los Ángeles) and a Bachelor of Interior Architecture at Kansas State University. In 1998, Brown created WORKSHOP, a 12 week summer college architecture student paid internship program. Past projects have been an art gallery and office space for non profits, furniture, office spaces, houses and art installations

In this year, Randy Brown established his practice in Los Angeles, California. RBA was formed in 1993 when the studio relocated to Brown’s home town of Omaha, Nebraska. Living and working surrounded by farming culture has had a profound effect on the studio.  Brown has developed a farmer’s perspective, a strong connection to the land and work with your hands mentality, making work that embodies its place.

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.
