Bruce Prescott, AIA, is an architect and urban designer whose experience reflects a passion for refining projects so that a design concept is fully realized in constructed form. Inspired by the conjunction of ideas and tectonics, Mr. Prescott brings to his work an unusual combination of skills and knowledge that enables pragmatic considerations to enhance rather than inhibit the poetry of buildings.

His collaboration with Adèle Naudé Santos is complemented by work in professional organizations such as the Center for Environmental Design and Planning at the University of Pennsylvania, as well as through teaching design to graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of California. Committed to sustainable design throughout his career, Mr. Prescott is an accredited professional in the USGBC LEED program.

Mr. Prescott manages complex, team-oriented projects, leading consultants while also refining the architectural design as a project evolves. He is involved in all phases of the work, from programming to sketches and presentation drawings budgets; from detailed specifications to oversight of the work through construction and use by the client.

Mr. Prescott holds a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was awarded the Medal of the American Institute of Architects for the student with the highest record in all courses. He was graduated summa cum laude from Washington University in Saint Louis.
