Glen Berry, AIA


Glen Berry was born in 1957 in Burley, Idaho, a fourth generation Idahoan, and a descendent from working-class British Aisle and German immigrants.  He is the son of a cattle rancher (father, Arlin) and the 1957 Cassia County Rodeo Queen (mother, Marlene).  Glen lived in Idaho until the age of 4, when his parents decided that a college education would provide a more meaningful life than herding cattle on the open range.  His parents moved to Provo, Utah where they both attended Brigham Young University.  His mother, Marlene, graduated in Art Education, and his father, Arlin, graduated in Accounting.  


In 1969, at the age of 13, Glen moved with his parents and siblings to Yorktown, New York, where he attended middle school and high school, graduating from Yorktown High School in 1975.  His father worked in Manhattan as an accountant for Ernst & Ernst and the St. Regis Paper Company.  In 1975 Glen returned to the Rocky Mountains to pursue his college education at Brigham Young University (Bachelor of Arts in Art & Design, 1983), and later at the University of Utah (Master of Architecture, 1988).  His first project as a design intern was the Eccles Genetics Research Building for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) at the University of Utah.  Ken Louder, AIA, his boss and mentor at Fowler Ferguson Kingston Ruben Architects, gave him the opportunity of a lifetime to work on a major research facility having not yet graduated from Architecture School.  


After completing his Master of Architecture degree at the University of Utah in 1988, for the next 12 years he worked for RFD in San Diego, The Stichler Design Group in San Diego, GPR Planners (now Jacobs Consultancy) in Irvine, California, and HOK in Irvine, California.  During that time he was mentored by the best lab planners and designers in the United States-  Malcom Barksdale, AIA, and Rick Heinz, FAIA, of Research Facilities Design; and Josh Meyer, AIA, and Steve Rosenstein of GPR Planners (now Jacobs Consultancy).  


In the summer of 2000, Glen founded Design for Science, LLC, in direct response to a demand from architects for a lab planning consultant who was willing to share their experience and knowledge base, but allow the architects and engineers to do the construction documents.    The key tool of the practice is the development of lab design sketchbooks, in which the lab design is conveyed in a clear and concise way that allows the  lab users to understand the lab design before construction documents are created and the building is built.


Glen is a registered architect in Utah, Texas, Idaho, and Nevada, and is certified with the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), and the American Institute of Architects (AIA).   Design for Science has offices in Carlsbad, California and Eagle, Idaho.


Glen has been married to Laura Ann Chillog since 1979, and they are the parents of four children and two grandchildren. Laura is a fourth generation Southern Californian, and a descendent from working-class Hungarian and British Aisle immigrants.


Glen spends his free time with family, whitewater canoeing on the Payette River in Idaho and the San Juan river in southern Utah, and flyfishing on the Boise river in Eagle, Idaho.
