Series Preview: The Garden State’s Most Iconic Architects

AIA-NJNew Jersey is not just home to Jack Nicholson, Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi; it’s also home to some of architecture’s greatest minds – those who have helped shape the world in which we live. In honor of National Architecture Week (April 7-13, 2013) a week-long celebration of architects and architecture, the New Jersey Chapter of the American Institute of Architects created a list of 10 of New Jersey’s most iconic architects.

The list includes architects representing a range of architecture styles and philosophies; contemporary and historic figures; men and women; North and South. In some way they all are connected to the Garden State — whether they were born or practiced in New Jersey.

AIA New Jersey will highlight two of these iconic architects each day, Monday through Friday of this week. You may or may not agree with the list, but we hope it will encourage dialogue about architects and architecture in the great State of New Jersey. We urge you to share the stories of these architects with your family and friends, and to share with us your thoughts about our list of New Jersey’s most iconic architects in the comment section after each article.

We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us – Winston Churchill

Enjoy!
