BRAVE / PRAXIS: Stig's Architectural Cousin ::: Bryant Alcantara

Originally from Los Angeles, California, Bryant has lived in Houston since 1996. He graduated with honors from the University of Houston’s Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture in 2004. While in school he traveled to Mexico to participate in a Historic Preservation study abroad program that focused on rehabilitated buildings and the in-depth measurement and documentation of settlement structures from 16th century. Bryant also traveled throughout Europe during his studies and researching urban development.

Bryant’s 2003 architectural entry into The Interfaith Sacred Space International Design Competition was selected as one of four winning entries and was one of the two winning entries that came from student projects. He presented the project, titled Inner City Interfaith Chapel, at the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Barcelona, Spain in July 2004.

In 2005 Bryant participated as a team captain in the 9th Annual CANstruction Houston Design-Build Competition organized by the Society of Design Administration and the AIA Houston Chapter. Benefiting the Houston Food bank, he found the competition a wonderful event and continued to participate.

Outside of the office you will find Bryant under the hood of a car. An auto enthusiast, Bryant likes to take on small car modification and maintenance projects. He participates occasionally at weekend road course track events and performance driving schools. Mixing his architecture and automotive interests, he spent time visiting the Porsche Factory and Museum in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, Germany; the Ferrari Factory in Maranello, Italy; and the Lamborghini Factory and Museum in Sant’Agata, Italy.
