Bruce is an architect director with experience across a range of sectors including workplace, culture, education, heritage, healthcare and transport
Bruce’s first responsibility is to ensure that the buildings he designs meet our clients’ needs but, in addition, that they make a positive contribution to the built environment, enriching the experience of everyone engaged with them, from building users to the passer-by.
His work on a great variety of projects across all sectors, in the UK, Europe, North America, Asia and the UAE, has given Bruce the opportunity to lead teams drawn from our interdisciplinary UK and international studios to develop projects inspired by their context, and that reflect local culture and practice.
During more than two decades at BDP, Bruce has participated in the evolution of traditional relationships between consultants and contractors, leading to today’s integrated project teams. The collaborative ethos of the practice provides an ideal framework within which such partnerships develop naturally.
“Design focused. With an increasing emphasis on procurement of buildings which, first and foremost, are cheap to construct and simple to build, architects must continue to offer innovative and bespoke solutions to improve the function and efficiency of buildings but, more than that, that add joy to the experience of being in our towns and cities. If we can do this, we have a secure and rewarding future.”
