Mr. Gille received his Master of Architecture degree in 1982 from Tulane University where recognition for his excellence in design afforded him the opportunity to augment his formal education.
As the recipient of the Russo + Sonder Internship Award, he was allowed to work and study in New York City. In addition, his studies took him to the San Francisco Art Institute, where he participated in the Center for Architecture & Urban Studies with several nationally recognized architects including Nathanial Owings and Charles Moore. This broad educational background has enhanced Mr. Gille’s ability to assimilate complex design programs and assemble them into creative building solutions.
In addition to the benefits of his formal education, Mr. Gille also places a great emphasis on the variety of experiences he has received as a design professional. Although he has been on the design team for complex, multi-story hospital projects, he equally enjoys designing commercial and residential scale projects. His association with award-winning architects across the country has brought to Brian Gille Architects the ability to address a wide range of building issues with innovative design. Mr. Gille is a registered architect in Louisiana and is certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB).
Native to southern Louisiana, Mr. Pierce earned his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Louisiana State University in 1999.
