Bernard received his diploma in architecture in 1938. That same year he won first prize in the Prix de Rome. Afterwards he worked as an architect in charge of civil buildings and national monuments, a position concerned with the renovation of historic buildings. He also served as urban planner for the city of Grenoble, director of the Atelier parisien d’urbanisme, and studio director of the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts. He was elected to the Académie des Beaux-Arts in 1968, replacing Jean Dupas. He became president of that institution in 1988, serving until his death in 1994.
