Architecture’s role in reinterpreting how we relate to the city characterizes Bruce’s approach to design. He is influenced by the work of Peter Eisenman and Aldo Rossi, where an appreciation for the timelessness of architectural form and the urban context form a specific relationship that causes us to reexamine how we live. Bruce believes exceptional architecture is inherently critical of the way we think, moving us to communicate how we see and interact with the world.
A native of California, Bruce returned to the West Coast after living for fifteen years in New York and Connecticut. In New York he worked with KPF on the City University of New York Advanced Science Research Center and at BBB, on the renovation restoration of Thurgood Marshall US Courthouse. Prior to joining WRNS, he worked for Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects on a masterplan for the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology and a competition for Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Performing Arts Center. Bruce attended Princeton University for his BA in architecture and earned his Master of Architecture from Yale.
