Jack Robbins



Fellow since 2016

As Principal, Jack works with public and private clients to create vibrant, sustainable cities. He brings a design-oriented approach and international experience to creatively solving complex challenges, with a keen understanding of the designer’s responsibility to the public.

Jack was convinced of his future as an architect from a young age. With an undergraduate foundation in visual arts and literature from Harvard University, he received his Master of Architecture from the Yale School of Architecture. Travel has also been formative for Jack, who grew up in various cities and began his architecture career working in Hong Kong.

Jack has lead mixed-use development projects, spanning urban infrastructure, transportation, multi-family residential developments, and large-scale master plans. An active voice in the wider design community, he teaches in the Real Estate program at NYU, frequently speaks at conferences and symposia, and his writing has appeared in Architectural Record, World Architecture, and the New York Times.
