Robert Bruce Dean is a registered Architect, and a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (B.A. in Arch., 1971) and Columbia University (M.Arch. 1976). He has been a registered Architect since 1979. Mr. Dean brings a unique background to his practice, combining substantial work as a practicing architect with scholarly credentials in design history and experience in directly managing construction work.
Mr. Dean sharpened his design skills by working for noted architects and firms such as Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill, Philip Johnson, and Robert A.M. Stern. His knowledge of architectural history and design has led to teaching at the university level, while his knowledge of the building craft was honed by direct involvement, early in his career, in managing construction projects.
