Andrew Bruno is the Ventulett NEXT Fellow at Georgia Tech for 2022-2024. He is a registered architect and educator. Andrew’s research for the NEXT Fellowship focuses on the history of the detached house and the role of the suburbs more broadly in the creation of the sprawling American built environment, and how the urban, architectural, and construction practices that have led to our present condition might be reimagined in the service of a suburbia that can support programmatic and demographic diversity, deeper bonds of community and family, and greater sustainability.
Prior to joining Georgia Tech, Andrew worked in the Design Department of the New York City Housing Authority. He was a fellow with the Institute for Public Architecture’s 2020 Fall Fellowship, where he studied potential replacements for the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in New York City. He was recently on one of four teams to contribute work to the Center for Architecture’s exhibition Reset: Towards a New Commons. Andrew is also the creator of the project One House Per Day, in which a different drawing of a detached house appeared on the project’s Instagram page @one_house_per_day for each day in 2020. Subsequently, the project has transitioned into the curatorial realm, with invited guest designers contributing their take on the detached house through week-long guest appearances.
Andrew’s work has been featured in the Architect’s Newspaper, Architect Magazine, Archinect, designboom, and Elle Décor Italia. A book featuring the original 365 drawings from One House Per Day, plus contributor essays, was published in late 2022.
