Architecture has always been considered the science, art or profession of designing and constructing buildings, but when all these elements are combined, result in one very powerful force. This has been the path Sam Guidry has chosen to develop through-out his long career. Sam was born and raised in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, and received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Louisiana, at Lafayette, school of Architecture and Design.  After graduating with honors, Sam worked for several prominent firms such as, Desmond-Meirmont  Architects and Engineers, O'rouke-Gossen and Associates Architects, and Harold L. Thompson and Associates, in the Lafayette and Baton Rouge areas. He was involved in numerous educational, commercial, institutional, medical, religious, retail, residential and multi-family projects.

Sam served in the United State Navy as a commissioned officer in the Civil Engineer Corps. His training at the Naval Civil Engineer Corps Facilities, Port Hueneme, California included military construction management, estimating, contract administration and military combat operations with the Seabees.

In 1990, Sam partnered to form Barker/Guidry Architects Inc. (BGA). As Senior Principal and chief project designer he played an important role in the development and revitalization of downtown Wilmington, NC. He has designed many residences in the Landfall and Figure Eight Island Development Communities.
