Kenneth Guditz, AIA LEED
An Associate at the firm, Ken is Bruner/Cott’s in-house technical expert on architectural detailing, restoration, and preservation. He has worked on some of the most innovative and significant restoration projects in New England and across the country, including the School of Law renovation at Boston University, where he was the preservation and technical manager for the update of Josep Lluis Sert’s mid-century modern complex.
With extensive experience in the restoration and adaptive reuse of historic buildings, Ken has dedicated his life to exploring how buildings come together. He believes that architects need to decode an existing building’s DNA prior to any intervention. This level of intimacy with the structure allows architects to preserve the building’s integrity while adapting it to new standards and programs.
In his 25 years of practice prior to joining Bruner/Cott, Ken managed several other high-profile preservation projects in Boston, including the Hatch Memorial Shell, the Wang Center for the Performing Arts, and the Christian Science Publishing House.
