Brandon Townsend AIA, LEED AP
Associate Principal / Project Architect
Brandon Townsend never imagined he would end up designing buildings as his career. As an acclaimed soccer player in his youth, Brandon had the ambitious dream of becoming a professional athlete but after tearing his ACL as a senior in high school, he lost his scholarship to play in college.
“With no college fund, I had to stay at home to save money for college. I took a job at a local architecture firm and eventually found myself in the University of Texas- Austin School Of Architecture. I worked my way through school and focused my passion for soccer into my passion of design,” Brandon explains. “This experience taught me a tremendous amount of humility while giving me confidence to achieve my goals.”
Brandon has been at Page since 2008 and has worked on and designed a variety of buildings. When asked how commitment, creativity and collaboration—three of Page’s most important values—influence/impact his work, he answered “To achieve truly great work, one cannot separate any of these areas. I gravitate towards creativity and feel that this is what inspires our daily tasks.”
One of Brandon’s favorite projects to date that he has collaborated on is the Veterans Affairs – Austin, Healthcare Clinic because of it's close connection to home. “My grandfather is a veteran and knowing that he will have access to a great facility gives me a wonderful sense of pride," he says.
Brandon graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from The University of Texas – Austin, School of Architecture in 2001. Away from the office, Brandon spends his time involved with the community as a member of AIA Austin and the Bethlehem Healing Temple—an organization that brings and showcases design careers to inner city children. He also enjoys cycling and painting in his spare time.
