Carmen Arriaga-Bucher

Associate, Designer

Fresh out of her Master of Architecture program at the University of Kansas, Carmen joins BRS charged with enthusiasm (she still hasn’t come to terms with the reality that architects are overworked and underpaid)! A creative, big-picture thinker, Carmen brings a sunny disposition and strong work ethic to every project. She is a bona fide Colorado Native with close connections to nature and a passion for outdoor activities. In her spare time, Carmen volunteers her talents to help improve communities around Denver, such as her recent involvement in a charrette aimed at encouraging community involvement in a local mural. We like her awesome dog Barley almost as much as we like her.
