Who is Agent?

ANDREW BARNES, AIA

Andrew always knew he wanted to be an architect. He was drawing floorplans as far back as the first grade. His talents progressed, and by the third or fourth grade, he had moved on to drawing three-dimensional spaceships. He has learned much in the years since then, completing his Masters of Architecture at Kansas State University.  Upon graduation, he taught a design studio at the K-State School of Architecture for one year before moving to Dallas.  Andrew spent 2 1/2 years working in the Commercial design studio of a large firm. In that time, he was engaged on projects around the world in Mexico, Korea, Dallas, the Philippines, Indonesia, and many more.  Afterwords, Andrew went to work for a well-respected boutique firm in Dallas known for elegant and thoughtful design in a “classic modernist” aesthetic. It was there that Andrew honed his abilities and learned the nuts and bolts of putting a building together, working with all parties to create the desired result.

Andrew is also active in the local community. He serves on various committees at AIA Dallas, and is on the leadership of Design Future Dallas, a collaboration of young designers creating visions for the City.  He occasionally writes, having been published in Texas Architect, the Architect’s Newspaper, and the Kansas City Star.  Andrew enjoys a good sandwich and will often watch sci-fi in his free time.
