Rachel Jordan Bascombe, AIA is a licensed Architect, LEED BD+C certified, and an active member of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA). She has worked in all phases of design and construction for both new construction and renovation projects. Her diverse set of skills, diligent work ethic, and adaptability makes her a sought-after collaborator at CO Architects. She effectively communicates design ideas with clients by using tools like renderings, augmented reality, and mock-ups. Her keen attention to detail, supported by experience on construction sites, allows her to develop well-coordinated projects that are a true reflection of the client. Most recently, Rachel served as the project architect for the multi-phased Psychology Tower Renovation for UCLA, which renovated a historic Paul Williams building while maintaining ongoing operations.
When she is not working on projects for healthcare, higher education, and government clients, she can be found participating in panel discussions or mentoring at a local architecture summer camp. Recognizing how significantly architecture can impact the community it serves, Rachel has developed a passion for sustainability and public interest design. She received a Bachelor of Environmental Design degree followed by a Bachelor of Architecture degree from North Carolina State University.
