Andrew Bromberg (RIBA, Int Assoc. AIA) is Global Design Principal at the international architectural practice, Aedas.
Bromberg, born in 1968, Colorado, USA, has been steadily gaining recognition for his ground-breaking architectural design for projects in China, the Far East, the Middle East, Europe and North America, ranging from smaller cultural, retail and educational venues to larger mixed-use commercial developments, as well as significant infrastructure and transport schemes.
The architect’s most notable projects include The Star in Singapore, designed with a 5,000-seat concert hall dramatically perched above publically accessible forecourt and retail areas, completed in 2012, Sandcrawler, the regional headquarters for Lucasfilm Singapore, clad in energy-saving luminous facades, completed in 2014, and the place-making Nanfung Commercial, Hospitality and Exhibition Complex in Guangzhou, built on the bank of the Pearl River estuary, completed in 2013.
Currently underway is West Kowloon Station, set to open in September 2018. The 430,000sqm project will be one of the largest and busiest stations in the world, with 9 long-haul tracks and 6 short-haul tracks, directly linking Hong Kong to major cities in mainland China all the way to Beijing via high speed trains for the first time.
Bromberg’s dynamic design will allow people to walk on the station’s rooftop aligned with mature trees and enjoy a new view of the famous Hong Kong skyline upon arrival. 3.5 hectares of ‘civic plaza’ will be introduced to the area immediately adjacent to the future West Kowloon Cultural District.
Bromberg received his Master’s degree in architecture at the Southern California Institute of Architecture and University of Washington in 1994, after completing his Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Design from University of Colorado and Arizona State University in 1990.
A keen hiker and traveler since young age, Bromberg draws inspiration from nature and his interest in how people live in different cultures to create meaningful, people-centric architectural works.
