Associate Architect

A unicorn Nashville area native, Barnes has known he wanted to be an architect since the 3rd grade. He followed up on his dream and attended Mississippi State University’s School of Architecture, Art, and Design where he got his Bachelor of Science in Architecture. While studying for his degree, Barnes worked with a professional and college sports facility branding company helping develop some of the most prestigious fan experiences across the country. After graduating in 2019, he started work in his hometown – Franklin. There he developed the skills born through school and honed through profession. He focused on the commercial and multi-family projects coming through the office before looking to take what he had learned farther north. Barnes began with RA as an Associate Architect in late 2021.
