Will Bruder leads Will Bruder Architects, a firm based in Phoenix Arizona. The firm will extend the hands-on approach of Bruder’s career as an architect and educator dedicated to creating uniquely contemporary architectural environments in celebration of people and place. The firm’s work includes residential, repurposing, civic/cultural/educational buildings as well as mixed-use urban in-fill, master-planning, and interiors, with a focus on making cities more livable. Self-trained as an architect, Bruder has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; supplementing his studio art education were studies in structural engineering, philosophy, art history, and urban planning, followed by architectural apprenticeships under Gunnar Birkerts and Paolo Soleri. A registered architect, Bruder opened his own studio in 1974, realizing over 500 commissions, 100 awards, and 1000 publications. Recent projects include the Burton Barr Phoenix Central Library, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, the Nevada Museum of Art, and the Agave Library
