Tad Bradley received his Master of Architecture degree from Montana State University in 2003. The research of this degree focused on the Psychological Effects of Space. After spending nearly two years of working in Boston at Cambridge Seven Associates, LDA Architects and teaching at the Boston Architectural College he returned to Bozeman. While teaching at MSU he held employment at several local architecture firms spanning between commercial and residential design. Supplemental to this he worked for several construction companies seeking to refine his knowledge of construction techniques and material understanding—that would then be disseminated to his students in the School of Architecture.
Outside of MSU his current research and practice is studying and teaching design fundamentals of glass in his studio, glass as a medium of architectural education, pursuing large-scale private and public art commissions, and building a hot shop to teach and explore blowing glass over the summer.
