Architect Bruce Fowle co-founded Fox & Fowle Architects in 1978 and is now a Principal at FXFOWLE Architects, LLP. The business is founded on the philosophical basis of architecture that is conscious and respectful of context and utility while enriching the human experience. Since that time, he has guided his firm to international recognition for excellence in design and environmental responsibility.

Bruce's leadership has shaped most of the firm's most recognized projects, ranging from high-rise, multi-use complexes to cultural institutions and private homes. His work has earned the firm a number of major awards, including a 2001 National Honor Award for Design, the highest honor that the American Institute of Architects bestows on a project, for the Condé Nast Building at 4 Times Square. His current work includes the New York Times Building, a new School of Management at Syracuse University, the preliminary design for Manhattan’s Second Avenue Subway, and the expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center

Bruce was a founder and chairman of the New York chapter of Architects, Designers and Planners for Social Responsibility, an advocacy group for social justice and a sustainable built environment. He is on the Advisory Boards of New School University's Eugene Lang College and the New York City Ballet. Following the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, he helped create and mobilize New York New Visions, a coalition of organizations to help shape the planning and design response to the destruction. He continues to serve on the executive board which acts in an advisory capacity, providing vision and guidance to the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation. A 1960 graduate of the Syracuse University School of Architecture, he was a founder and chair of the school's Advisory Board and was the recipient of its George Arents Pioneer Medal in 2001.[1][2][3] He is LEED accredited by the U.S. Green Building Council.

In 1991, Fowle was elected into the National Academy of Design as an Associate member, and became a full Academician in 1994. He has served as President since 2011.
