Bob Fox is one of New York City’s most highly respected leaders in the green building movement. Widely recognized for leadership in sustainability and design excellence, Bob’s work has established him as an influential voice in the architectural profession, the business community, and in service to the public sector. In 2003, Bob joined with Rick Cook to form COOKFOX Architects, a firm devoted to creating beautiful, environmentally responsible high-performance buildings. The firm is best known for its design of the Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park, the first commercial skyscraper to receive LEED Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council and the third tallest building in New York City. In 2006, Bob and Rick Cook joined Bill Browning and Chris Garvin to form Terrapin Bright Green. At Terrapin, Bob has applied his experience designing beautiful, green buildings to a broader spectrum of planning and policy projects, and helped creative clients make a difference at all levels.

I am very honored to be elected to the USGBC Board and I look forward to collaborating with my fellow Board members and Rick and Mahesh, to make a positive impact on its future direction.
