Rickman Architecture & Design, RAD is an architecture firm that believes through collaborative and creative processes a well-designed environment can serve as an agent for social change.
We believe in spurring one another toward love and good deeds through collaboration and encouragement. As architects we are in the business of building up, not breaking down. There's immeasurable value when you invest in people and community.
As designers, we have a belief that we’ve been equipped with the skill set to serve as a catalyst for positive change of the built environment. We believe in making a positive impact with eternal consequences.
Sometimes this opportunity is in the form of clients investing in their community, at other times there are social needs that require innovators to donate their time and skills to solve problems. We exist somewhere in between.
RAD is an Architecture & Design Studio that consists of 2 key contributors: Michael & Ashlee Rickman.
Michael attended Southern Polytechnic State University School of Architecture and graduated in 2004. Since that time he has worked at local architecture firms such as Flad Architects, plexus r+d and Stanley Beaman & Sears. During that time he had the amazing opportunity to work on several great architectural projects, most notably several multi-million dollar laboratories, healthcare facilities and served as a Project Architect for the new Mercedes Benz Stadium for the Atlanta Falcons. Over the years Michael has gained experience with several different building typologies which include: Single Family Residential, Multi-Family Residential, Healthcare, Science & Technology, Commercial, Retail, Adaptive Reuse, Sports and Aeronautical. Michael is a registered Architect with the State of Georgia.
Michael has also over the years worked on several graphic/web/branding design projects. Most recently branding the new ADC (Architecture & Design Center) of Atlanta and designing "The Peachtree Way" exhibition that was on display at Georgia Tech.

Ashlee heads up our Business Development. She graduated from the University of West Georgia in 2006 and worked in the Paulding County School System up until she (and Michael) decided to have 3 beautiful children. Rhyce, Maci & Jax. While managing a house hold of 5 she has been the face of RAD, smiling, shaking hands and getting to know anyone and everyone she can. She is awesome.
Together they work to create designs that inspire. Feel free to look around the website and let us know what you think.
