Henri Brooks

Henri joined CICADA in May of 2018. He is currently entering his fifth year in Drexel University’s 2+4 Bachelors of Architecture program – expected graduation in 2020. With a professional background in design + build and project management, Henri is eager to utilize his other skills in schematic design and presentation graphics as a new addition to the CICADA team. Henri hopes to be able to use architecture as a means of connecting people at a variety of scales – families, communities, and cities. He has always had a passion urban planning and public spaces, and is interested in finding new ways to apply design principles he has learned through those studies.

Henri looks forward to growing as an architectural designer alongside his mentors and coworkers at CICADA, honing new skills in design development, detailing, and construction administration. Being part of a collaborative team is an important part of a positive work experience for Henri, and he is grateful to have found a place at CICADA. The other half of Henri’s life consists of playing music: drumming in his band and playing at different venues around the Northeast, writing and recording original songs. He also enjoys photography, and sleeping when he can.
