Bruce S. Fowle, founding principal of Fox and Fowle Architects, P.C., will speak at Syracuse University on Wednesday, Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m. Fowle will discuss his vision for the future look and function of SU’s campus and its place in the Syracuse landscape. The lecture is part of the 2003-04 University Lecture Series, and will take place in Hendricks Chapel; it is free and open to the public. Parking is offered on a space-available basis in the University and Irving Avenue garages.
Fowle’s firm has designed the new building for SU’s Martin J. Whitman School of Management, which is currently being built on the corner of University Avenue and Marshall Street. The new building has 160,000 square feet and will include 22 state-of-the-art classrooms; 20 undergraduate and 20 graduate breakout rooms; a 200-seat auditorium; and a three-story, 4,000-square-foot Grand Hall. It is scheduled for occupancy in winter of 2005.
Other notable recognition for Fox and Fowle Architects includes a 2001 National Honor Award for Design-the highest honor that the American Institute of Architects (AIA) bestows on a project-and the 2000 Medal of Honor from the Institute’s New York Chapter. In 2002, the firm won four Society of American Registered Architects design awards, and both a Chapter and National AIA award for service to the profession.
The firm’s completed projects in New York City include the Conde Nast Building and the Reuters Building in Times Square; Le Grand Palais apartment building; the American Craft Museum; numerous facilities at The New School University; and additions to the American Bible Society and the historic Spence School. The firm has also designed the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China in Shanghai, and the Bausch & Lomb Headquarters and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Building in Rochester, N.Y.
Fowle is a 1960 graduate of Syracuse University and the 2001 recipient of SU’s prestigious George Arents Pioneer Medal for excellence in his field. He is also chairman of the SU School of Architecture Advisory Committee.
