Kimbro Frutiger is an architect and writer with twenty years of professional experience in New York, New Haven, and Chicago. He specializes in high-stakes projects, recently including the National September 11th Museum at the World Trade Center, the super-deep DUSEL facility in South Dakota’s Homestake Mine, and urban planning for social equity in Brazil and India. In all his work, Kimbro seeks out fundamental issues and offers responses that are both adventuresome and appropriate.
Kimbro studied Classical languages and archeology at Amherst College, with a focus on reconstruction of Greek-era sites in Sicily. He subsequently received an MArch from Yale University’s School of Architecture and is a registered architect in New York State. Since 2000, he has researched and written extensively about architectural design and professional culture in New York City during the 1960s and 70s, both for DoCoMoMo publications and a book in preparation.
