Mr. Brandon W. Gullotti
I completed my Bachelor of Architecture in 2009 at California Polytechnic University in Pomona. During my studies, I encountered many of Dr. Pablo La Roche’s courses on sustainability, which ignited a passion and encouraged me to strive for change in the architecture profession. After graduation, I began working at Escher GuneWardena Architecture. The firm’s dedication to modern design, sustainability and affordability proved to be an education as valuable as a second degree in design. As my professional experience developed, my passion for sustainability grew stronger and I decided to pursue a graduate degree. In 2012, I began the Master of Science in Regenerative Studies program at California Polytechnic University, Pomona. This program is very unique; it is a multi-disciplinary program that employs various strategies focusing on the interaction of natural processes, human behavior, and technology to regenerate natural systems. These principles were the foundation for my thesis, design and experimentation of a novel water-wall envelope component for passive and active heating and cooling. I am currently a designer at HMC Architects, and I am excited to play a role in bringing a holistic approach of regenerative design to their reputable firm.
