Henry Moss, AIA LEED AP
Henry’s distinguished career in historic preservation and adaptive reuse is rooted in the culture of design thinking at Bruner/Cott. The firm’s passion for rethinking existing buildings to make new kinds of places both stimulates and supports Henry’s award-winning work with projects such as MASS MoCA, the Watertown Arsenal, and the Hemingway Estate preservation near Havana, Cuba. Recipient of the 2015 Codman Award for Lifetime Achievement in Preservation from the Boston Preservation Alliance, Henry acknowledges that for him, the real award is appreciation of the places he helps to create from the people who live and work there.
Henry has led Bruner/Cott’s historic preservation team since 1986 when he joined the firm after sixteen years of life and work in London. He specializes in technical and building history aspects of architecture that inform both delicate restoration and large-scale adaptive reuse projects.
Henry is a recognized spokesman on historic preservation and preservation technology, and frequently writes about the theory and practice of architecture as it relates to historic properties. For over 25 years, he has led technical workshops for architects and contractors on historic building topics for the Boston Society of Architects. He is a founder of the New England Chapter of DOCOMOMO US, the international committee for the documentation and conservation of buildings, sites, and neighborhoods of the modern movement, and on the Properties Committee of Historic New England.
