Barry Wood is one part artist, one part architect and one part rock 'n' roll. His diverse professional experience and wide-open spirit allow him to create thoughtful yet fun environments. He has designed his way through America on TLC's Trading Spaces and can now be seen on HGTV's Hidden Potential. Barry's designs are said to be layered with a balance of exploration, precedent and invention.
Raised in north-central Connecticut, Barry is the youngest of three children and discovered his passion for architecture at age 12. He developed his theory-based design process in Florence, Italy, and at Syracuse University, graduating with a bachelor of architecture degree. After college Barry moved around the country before setting up a home base in Manhattan.
He honed his skills working as a designer for several firms in San Francisco, Baltimore and New York before becoming licensed and launching his own firm, b.wood Architects. Simultaneously, Barry has built a successful career as a model, appearing in numerous fashion shows, editorials and advertisements in New York, Milan, Hamburg, Miami and Los Angeles. He has also appeared in films, commercials and on television.
Barry's designs are always fresh, reflecting his belief that buildings and rooms should be inspired by the surrounding land and history yet spirited by today's new and unique 21st-century world.
