Founder and Director
As the director of Workshop AD, Steve Bull guides the design and development of all projects. Under his leadership, the workshop has completed projects throughout the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and the Intermountain West. Working within a dramatic range of urban and rural conditions, climate, and building uses, each project responds to the unique opportunities presented by context and client. Through a critical analysis of the physical, ecological, cultural, historical, and economic issues of the project, the resulting architecture presents a thoughtful synthesis of use, material, context, and form.
His work has been published and honored with numerous design recognitions including AIA State and Regional awards. He was the recipient of a Rotch Travelling Scholarship and traveled in South America documenting both historic and modern adaptations of architecture to landscape.
Steve grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota and holds both a Masters of Architecture and a Bachelors of Science in Art and Design from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Parallel to practice, Steve maintains active involvement in teaching and the arts as an Adjunct Professor at Washington State University and President of the Board of Directors for Book-It Repertory Theatre. In his twenties and thirties, as a nationally ranked cross country skier, ultra-marathoner, and adventure racer he traversed some of the most interesting terrain of Alaska and Washington. Steve lives in the Mount Baker neighborhood with his wife and two children.
