Bruce Buckland
Director & Principal Architect
Buckland Architects was originally founded in 2012 by Bruce Buckland in order to work on side-projects and begin reforming the practice and theory of architecture.
In January 2019 Bruce went full time with the practice, whilst also continuing with academic work at the Bartlett and starting our podcast 'Theory of Architecture'.
As well as engaging in ongoing design and theoretical research, the practice takes on regular commissions and consultancies with clients ranging from private individuals to multinational architectural practices.
When it comes to our core philosophy and principles, we are rather different.
Whilst the majority of architects are still caught up in the hangovers from 20th century modernism and postmodernism, we believe there is an alternative.
Taking and adapting an amalgamation of principles from an assortment of great philosophers, architects, naturalists, writers and scientists, we believe in creating architecture that follows on from a certain ontological position.
The exact nature of that position is too complex to be summed up in a few sentences here, but its results are a set of strong principles that we always follow in our work.
