Having joined KPF in 2001, Bruce is an accomplished and award-winning designer, working on a diversity of project types around the world. On every project he is involved in, Bruce makes sure to work closely and in detail, ensuring that every building he designs is a direct result of the project’s specific context, brief and client aspirations.
Much of Bruce’s work has focused on large scale projects, including master plans and tall towers. He helped develop the initial design concepts for Songdo International Business District, a new, innovative city near Incheon, South Korea. He was also involved in a master plan for Jakarta’s largest, exurban development, a 6,000 hectare project that links indigenous villages to new development.
Partnering with the Millennium Cities Initiative and the Earth Institute at Columbia University, Bruce led a KPF team in analyzing the existing conditions of Accra in Ghana and developing a new housing prototype for its residents. The pro bono project was well received and won an AIA New York Merit Award in 2013.
Bruce has also served as Senior Designer for several additional projects throughout Asia, including Marina Bay Financial Centre and 18 Robinson, both in Singapore, and Wheelock Square, a tall office tower in Shanghai. He was also involved in the design of Hysan Place, the first LEED Platinum in Hong Kong.
Bruce recently served as Co-Chair for New York AIA Global Dialogues, a committee that looks at global issues that affect the design professions, for whom he helped to organize several events. He has also been a visiting critic at his alma mater, Columbia University, where he won the prestigious thesis prize in 1994.
