Cott FAIA, LEED, the rm's institu- tional work includes campus planning and design with an expertise in student amenities including student housing, dining facilities, and student centers. In the private sector, Bruner/Cott's work is largely urban, resolving issues related to neighborhood revitalization, the integration of new structures into the urban fabric, and the reuse of historically signi cant buildings. For over three decades, Bruner/Cott's designs have earned national and international recognition, including two National AIA Honor Awards. Bruner/Cott encourages a participatory process in their work with a goal of each project participant "owning" the building. e diverse strengths of the rm have brought repeat work from many valued clients, among them are Harvard University, MIT, Vanderbilt University, the Abbey Group, and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA). e design approach of Bruner/ Cott re ects a collaborative, iterative, organic and client-focused architectural philosophy.

Shape and style evolve through the understanding of the building in time and place. eir buildings are beautiful, functional and appropriate. e BAC is proud to share a unique collaboration with Bruner/ Cott. By employing and mentoring BAC students outside the class- room, Bruner/Cott professionals are instrumental in shaping the future of the design professions. Academics and Practice is the unique synergy that is the basis of the BAC concurrent curriculum and this collaboration distinguishes our students' experiences from other design institutions across the nation. As a valued Practice rm, Bruner/Cott is an integral part of this distinctive learning model and we are grateful for the vital role the rm plays in the education of our students. PRACTICE 68
