An Indiana native and a Principal with RATIO, Brock’s focus has been on design. Guided by the desire to listen to the client’s needs, Brock leads the design process on projects working to achieve collaborative, team-building consensus. Although he has been the project designer on many different types of projects, his primary focus has been in Higher Education, Health Sciences, and New Media.
Brock’s philosophy on design centers on the idea that architecture should not only create a “sense of place,” but it should also be a catalyst for innovation, community, and a sustainable way of thinking. He believes that each project should have a unique story to tell—an architectural narrative that gives each project meaning that goes beyond simply addressing the functional needs of the client.
In addition to providing leadership throughout the design process, Brock provides firm leadership through various non-project initiatives as well, leading the design and innovation community of practice and the recruitment and retention efforts for the architecture discipline. Serving on a local community board for Irish Fest, Brock realizes the importance of giving back to the community and strives to make an impact beyond the firm as well.
