Paul Goldberger

Paul Goldberger (born in 1950 in Passaic, New Jersey) is an American Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic. He is well known for his "Sky Line" column in "The New Yorker".

Shortly after starting as a writer at "The New York Times" in 1972, he was assigned to write the obituary of architect Louis Kahn, who died suddenly of a heart attack in a bathroom in New York's Pennsylvania Station. The next year, he was named the paper's architecture critic.

In 1984 Goldberger won the Pulitzer, the highest award given in journalism, for his architecture criticism in "The Times." In 1996, New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani presented him with the city’s Preservation Achievement Award in recognition of the impact of his work on historic preservation.

From July 2004 until June 2006, he served as the Dean of Parsons The New School for Design (formerly The Parsons School of Design). He retains a tenured position as the Joseph Urban professor of Design at Parsons.

He is the author of the book "Up from Zero: Politics, Architecture, and the Rebuilding of New York" and "The City Observed, New York, a Guide to the Architecture of Manhattan". Also, in a May 2005 "New Yorker" column, he suggested that the best solution for rebuilding at Ground Zero would focus on residential use mixed with cultural and memorial elements.

A resident of the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Goldberger is married to Susan Solomon and has three sons, Adam, Ben and Alex. He is a graduate of Yale University, and was a member of Wolf's Head Society.
