Alan Bright

Alan Bright, FAIA, LEED AP BD+C, is the design principal for HOK’s San Francisco office. As a strong advocate for the “power of less” and affordable sustainability, he has pioneered a process for creating built environments that make efficient use of the planet’s resources – minimizing square footage, materials, waste and costs.

Alan has led the early adoption of an integrated team process to achieve efficiencies and outcomes not possible through a conventional design process. His innovative approach creates a client-centric, collaborative environment for the entire design and construction team.
