Senior Designer, BRIC Architecture, Inc.
Ed Herrera has long been interested in art, design, and how the two intertwine in the urban fabric. He draws on his own life experiences of childhood in the Philippines and growing up in Southern California to be resonating inspirations for provoking connections and collaborations –a consistent theme he likes to embed, whether in the workplace or community. Having lived in San Diego, Boston, and now Portland, his involvement in multiple architecture communities has enabled him to explore professional collaborations in each region.
Ed holds high value in the impact that the built environment, in each respective form, can have in social and economic change, from multi-family housing, mixed-use structures, and corporate workplace environments. His continued pursuit of helping to shape communities has directed him to focus on schools and educational environments.
Ed brings many years of design background expertise to our Advisory Council, from such grass roots work of mosaic tile murals to delivering a 20-story multi-family residence. In his words: “It all comes down to the process.” Ed is a Senior Designer at BRIC Architecture, Inc., where he works on school design and is constantly inspired by working for the children.
