With a specific focus on enhanced clinical performance and adaptable hospital design, Ryan works to ensure that research-driven methodologies are at the center of NBBJ’s design process. Most recently, he has focused on a performance-based approach to design that leverages the transformative potential of Building Information Modeling (BIM), Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), and prefabrication. This work is yielding architectural solutions that are collaboratively developed, rapidly constructed, and highly adaptable, and he has presented this research at conferences across the United States and presentations abroad in Canada, New Zealand, and the Middle East.
His work has received numerous national design awards, including the top honors bestowed by Modern Healthcare in 2011 and Healthcare Design in 2012, and been published in leading healthcare design journals and engineering, construction and design publications including Metropolis, Building Design & Construction, and Engineering News-Record.
Ryan holds a Bachelor’s degree from Ohio State University and a Master of Architecture from Columbia University.
