He also holds the Joseph Urban Chair in Design and Architecture at The New School in New York City. He was formerly Dean of the Parsons school of design, a division of The New School. He began his career at The New York Times, where in 1984 his architecture criticism was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Criticism, the highest award in journalism.




About the Moderator.

Together with founding partners John Belle and Richard Blinder, John Beyer (Jack) established the guiding values and principles that have anchored Beyer Blinder Belle’s practice for more than five decades, with offices in Boston, New York, and Washington DC and a staff of over 150. His steadfast dedication to the life of the city has shaped the firm’s civic-minded approach to architecture and a truly collaborative office culture.

Over the course of his practice, Jack has forged and helped refine the firm’s commitment to designing contextual solutions to architecture and planning. The firm’s major projects include restorations of Grand Central Terminal, the TWA Flight Center, Rockefeller Center, the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at New York Botanical Garden, and Ellis Island. Jack’s clients include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the South Street Seaport Museum, Temple Emanu-El, Metro North Railroad, Extell Development Company, Two Trees Management Company, Vornado, Denison, Harvard, and Columbia Universities, many government agencies, and private residential clients. He has an undergraduate degree from Denison University and earned his Master’s degree in Architecture from Harvard University. He has served as a juror and studio design critic at Columbia and Cornell, and has lectured on historic preservation at Harvard. In addition, he has served multiple terms on the Harvard Graduate School of Design Alumni Council.
