Pat Bosch, Design Director and Principal, Perkins and Will
Born in Cuba to architect parents, Bosch spent her childhood growing up between Spain, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, and New York. Fluent in four languages, Pat is a true global citizen.
From an early age, she developed a keen awareness of social and cultural nuances, which would later inform her design thinking, and influence her work. Pat’s human-focused designs often serve as agents of social change, creating opportunities for the underrepresented. Take her work on the Greater Accra Regional Hospital in Ghana, where she helped to create a next-generation model of healthcare, one that elevated the patient and caregiver experience, specifically for women and children. Additionally, she has also served as a design principal on the Princess Nora Bint Abdulrahman University project in Saudi Arabia. At 30 million square feet, it is the largest university for women constructed at one time.
Pat has called Miami home since 1994 when she helped launch Perkins and Will’s studio there. She is a frequent guest speaker at local schools to inspire girls and young women who want to pursue design as a career. In addition to design, she loves to discover cultures through cooking, folk art, and materials.
