About Paul Goldberger
Paul Goldberger holds the Joseph Urban Chair in Design and Architecture at The New School in New York City. He is a Contributing Editor at Vanity Fair and has been called “the leading figure in architecture criticism” by the Huffington Post. Until 2011, he wrote the popular “Sky Line” column for The New Yorker and served as the magazine’s Architecture Critic. Goldberger began his career in journalism at The New York Times, where he won the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Criticism in 1984.
Goldberger’s many books include Why Architecture Matters (2009), a celebration of works of architecture that “embrace the deepest complexities of human understanding”; Building Up and Tearing Down: Reflections on the Age of Architecture (2009), a collection of his essays; and Christo and Jeanne-Claude (2010), a retrospective of the environmental artists’ life and work. Goldberger’s chronicle of the process of rebuilding Ground Zero, UP FROM ZERO: Politics, Architecture, and the Rebuilding of New York (2004), was named a New York Times Notable Book for 2004. He is currently at work on a book-length biography of Frank Gehry, to be published by Knopf in 2015.
