Matt O`Bright

Matt was born in Oshkosh, Wisconsin but grew up in Arizona since the age of three.  He graduated Magna Cum Laude with Honors at The University of Arizona, with a Bachelor of Architecture.

Matt believes in a sensitivity to the land, raw material expression, regionally appropriate design responses and a seeking of poetry and soul.  It is these beliefs that influences his designs.  Matt is fascinated by material weathering, tectonic assemblies and detailing. 

In addition to architecture he enjoys bike riding (fixed gear), painting, exploring downtown Phoenix, admiring the beauty and rawness of nature, sketching, imagining decrepit places re inhabited, being nice to complete strangers, graphic design, figure drawing, spending time with his dog Harley and drinking a good IPA.
