Bijan Thornycroft


Bijan is a methodical designer who uses clear, simple logic to solve complex problems. To him, architecture is an exploration of the inside and out, where he seeks to design building and site as one.

He joined WRNS Studio in 2019, soon after receiving his Master of Architecture from Harvard Graduate School of Design. Prior, he earned his Bachelor of Design in Architecture and Economics from Washington University in St. Louis. Throughout his coursework, Bijan studied abroad and held numerous internships, including at dePaor in Ireland where he led a small team to create a one-of-a-kind exhibition for the 2018 Venice Biennale.

At the studio, Bijan is an integral part of the design team, dedicated to working on all project phases from concept and design to construction administration. A natural leader, he enthusiastically shares his knowledge with others, constantly learning while teaching. In his work, he strives to create a quality of place that elevates the human experience and bridges the built and natural environments.
