John Barradas

John Barradas is an Architect based in Ithaca, N.Y. He is a graduate of Cornell University, College of Architecture Art and Planning and U. Mass, College of Visual and Performing Arts. His dual background in architecture and art is a source of inspiration for his work.

John's ability to visualize and sketch designs quickly allows the client and architect to make informed decisions early in the design process. More than 20 years in the architectural profession has afforded John the opportunity to be involved with many major projects in the Ithaca Community including the Science Building at Ithaca College and the Drop-In Children's Center in downtown Ithaca. His familiarity with local construction costs allows him to make design decisions within the clients specified budget.

John is also a member of the Ithaca Rotary Club, where he serves on the Jury for the Pride of Ownership awards. These awards recognize property owners who take special care in maintaining and improving their properties. For the award winners, John also prepares a sketch of the building, which is framed and presented with the award.
