Architect Brian Wickersham, AIA, is the founding partner of AUX Architecture. With more than twenty years of experience, he creates meaningful spaces that promote creativity and community. Bringing both rigor and spontaneity to his designs, he cultivates research and collaboration in his Los Angeles studio to produce bespoke architecture that best serves client needs. He likens this robust process to jazz: improvisational and collective. AUX Architecture’s diverse body of work includes award-winning residential and multifamily homes, retail environments, art galleries, and education and cultural arts centers. Notable projects include the Saddle Peak Residence, which uses natural materials and sustainable approaches to connect the house to the surrounding landscape, and the luminous, community minded Glorya Kaufman Performing Arts Center at Vista Del Mar Child and Family Services. A native of the Pacific Northwest, Brian strives to mitigate architecture’s impact on the environment. He integrates care and sustainability into all aspects of the studio. He is a licensed architect in California and Nevada, NCARB certified, and a LEED Accredited Professional.
