Rebecca Dunn Bryant, AIA


Rebecca Dunn Bryant, AIA co-founded WATERSHED in 2008 in order to build expertise around affordable, sustainable building solutions for a hot humid climate and create built environments that inspire a greater connection with the natural world. Originally from Alabama, Rebecca moved to Colorado to study sustainable design in 1990, receiving a BA in Social Ecology from the University of Colorado and a Masters of Architecture from Tulane University. She worked in San Francisco, New York, and Houston, before returning home to get red dirt back under her feet.

Rebecca has spent almost three decades focused on sustainable design and is frequently a featured speaker at conferences across the Southeast. Her work has been recognized with a Synergy Award from the Citizen’s Environmental Coalition, a LEED Fellowship, and AIA Alabama’s Presidents Award for leadership. She was also highlighted as one of 9 “Green Leaders in Red States” and Mobile Bay’s “Top 40 under 40” class of 2011.

Rebecca’s passion for sustainable development is focused on a biophilic design approach that seeks to restore a connection to place, and design, construction, and operational strategies tailored to meet the unique challenges of a hot humid climate. While the growing green building movement is international, her approach is decidedly local.

Anthony J. Garcia

Associate Architect

Anthony was born in Biloxi, MS and raised in the small communities of Jackson County. A childhood spent exploring the bayous, pine forests and shorelines along and off the Mississippi Gulf Coast cultivated his reflective nature. After receiving his Bachelors of Architecture from Mississippi State University, Anthony ventured off to Raleigh, North Carolina to begin his architectural career while starting a family.

Anthony has spent the last decade on teams that have designed award winning facilities for mid-Atlantic higher education institutions and state of the art research facilities for bio-science companies while also working with local developers and businesses to provide design services for smaller community driven projects. Whether through an underlying need to create with his hands, his passion for anything on two wheels, his athletic past, or the basic desire to leave anything he touches in better condition than when he found it, Anthony seeks to be completely engaged.

Anthony and his wife currently live near Perdido Bay where they are raising their children to enjoy and respect the natural beauty of the northern Gulf Coast. They spend much of their family time exploring the parks, preserves and white sands of Northwest Florida and Lower Alabama.

Florence de Asis

Intern Architect

Florence de Asis is the newest member of the WATERSHED team. She was born and raised in Gainesville, FL. Growing up she always loved fine arts, but realized her passion in architecture when visiting the Philippines right before college. Seeing the wreckage of Typhoon Haiyan and the failures of coastal design in addition to successful, resilient architecture she sought to understand how architecture can coexist in a symbiotic relationship with its environment. She graduated from the University of Florida in 2021 with a Bachelor’s in Design with a major in Architecture and minor in Sustainability and the Built Environment. She is excited to work for a firm that prioritizes sustainability and ecological design. Having previously worked in the Panhandle and South Florida, her experience ranges from multi-family housing and commercial, to institutional projects at major universities in Florida.
