Celebrating for 35 years

Founded in 1988


As a design practice, we are proud of the relationships and collaborations over our 35 years. These relationships continue on an ongoing basis as our clients evolve in their pursuits and ask our practice to participate in their growth. our clients success fuels our passion to deliver a vision commensurate to their goals. in the end, these relationships transform from client/architect to "partnerships" for the present and future.   

As the creative director of a hands-on practice, Ross Bianco originates initial concepts and schematic design and continues an ongoing collaboration with the client, the client's team and an exceptional architectural staff, specific engineers, and specialty consultants to fulfill the project’s delivery process. From the beginning of every endeavor – including the early stages of “listening” to a client’s intent – Mr. Bianco oversees all aspects  of the process.

This constant focus ensures the project will be realized to match its original intent, vision, and client expectations. It is this focus that has served many different types of clients; and, many clients on a repeat basis.

Ross Bianco Architect and RBA International Inc., are affiliated design groups under the leadership of founding principal/architect, Ross Bianco. The core team at RBA includes Ross Bianco, Dustin Miller and Randi Bayer.

From the beginning of our practice and to the present, we combine “value” with quality at every phase of service. Upon his arrival in Pittsburgh in the 1980’s, Mr. Bianco’s rapid rise has been centered on design, client-focused services, and a unique ability to promote a vision not obviously apparent to others.
