Lectures

Works in Progress, 1959–2009

Paul H. Krueger AIA, ASLA

At age 28, Krueger was project architect for Harvard's Carpenter Center, Le Corbusier’s only building in North America. Soon after the project's completion in 1963, Paul designed the remarkable Mark House in Truro, to be followed by many others. His lecture will focus on his collaboration with Corbu and its effect on his work.

Paul Krueger is Principal of Krueger Associates Architects and Landscape Architects, Cambridge and Truro.
