Bruce Fowle

Who

Fowle runs FXFowle, a leading architecture and interior design firm.

Backstory

Syracuse grad Fowle founded the architecture studio Fox + Fowle in the early '70s with partner Robert Fox and spent more than two decades designing corporate towers such as 4 Times Square (home to Condé Nast and Skadden Arps) and 3 Times Square, otherwise known as the Reuters Building. In 2005, Bob Fox dramatically quit the company; Fowle rebranded the firm as FXFowle. (Meanwhile, Fox went off to start Fox + Cook.) Fowle has been plenty busy since the split. He's continued to receive major commissions, often working as co-architect with better-known architects. In 2007, Fowle and Italian starchitect Renzo Piano completed the new 52-story, glass-and-steel headquarters of the New York Times on Eighth Avenue. Also active on the residential front, he recently wrapped up work on the Helena on West 57th Street. Fowle's currently working on two high-profile projects. Along with Ricardo Scofidio and Liz Diller's brainy firm DS+R, he's redeveloping Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall. He's also designing the subway stations for the long-awaited Second Avenue subway.

Personal

He's married to Marcia Taylor Fowle, who recently served as the president of the NYC chapter of the Audubon Society. The Fowles have three grown daughters: Abigail, Margaret (a wildlife biologist), and Suzanne (a conservation biologist). Fowle and his wife live on Park Avenue in the 90s.
