Peck School of the Arts alumni Will Bruder will be giving a lecture on Friday, February 21 delving in to his forty years of experience as both a practitioner and teacher of architecture. The lecture is titled, “The Head, the Heart and the Hand: Making Architecture in the Digital Age.”
Bruder’s unique working method uses both hand and digital design tools. He also focuses on “living in” one’s designs while giving people a new perspective.
Will Bruder earned a BFA in sculpture at UW-Milwaukee in 1969 while focusing on architecture, structural engineering, philosophy, art/architectural history and urban planning. He has been an apprentice under William Wenzler, Paolo Solreri and Gunnar Birkets. He has also had mentorships with Bruce Goff and Paul Schweikher.
His works include homes, estates, places of worship, art museums, libraries and corporate headquarters. Notable projects include Burton Barr Phoenix Central Library, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, and Nevada Museum of Art, Temple Kol Ami, Deer Valley Rock Art Center, and Henkel US Headquarters.
The lecture will take place at 4:30 in the Architecture and Urban Planning Building in room 170.
