For twenty-five years, Bonnie Blake-Drucker
has been an innovator in her field: a pioneer in the
design of sustainable, accessible, and work-enhancing
scientific and medical laboratories for worldrenowned
researchers. She has earned a national reputation for
the design of exceptional, universally accessible classroom
laboratories and has dedicated her practice to the creation
of sustainable built environments in a practice arena
laboratory design, especially renovations not often
known for green architecture.
Inherent sustainability is key to Blake-Drucker’s
work. Her designs integrate flexibility for multiple
users and ease of maintenance. Informed by her graduate
study in psychology, her architecture incorporates daylight
and outdoor views (rare for this project type) and excellent
acoustics, essential for dense work environments. It
thus encourages productivity,resulting in fewer changes
over the life of the space and minimizing or avoiding
the expense and disruption of the re-renovation cycle.
Clients affirm that her design strategies have persuaded
researchers to stay at their labs.
