Currently professor in practice of urban design, Krieger has taught at the GSD since 1977. He has combined a career of teaching and practice, dedicating himself in both to understanding how to improve the quality of place and life in our major urban areas. He chaired the Department of Urban Planning and Design from 1998 to 2004 and from 2006 to 2007. He served as Director of the Urban Design Program from 1990 to 2001, and as Associate Chairman of the Department of Architecture from 1984 to 1989. In private practice, Krieger is a principal at NBBJ, a global architecture and planning firm. He has authored more than two-dozen essays on American urbanization for various publications and lectures frequently at national conferences and universities.

Krieger received the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) 2016 Award of Honor, an annual, lifetime-achievement award that recognizes outstanding contributions to architecture and to the profession. In 2003, 2005, and 2007, he was honored as one of the outstanding teachers at Harvard University, while Design Intelligence magazine’s annual national survey named him one of seven “2007 Architectural Educators of the Year.”

After Krieger’s talk the full-day CACP 15 Year Celebration continues with student and faculty exhibits, a graduate and undergraduate student open house, the conclusion of a two-day student design-build competition, and an awards program that will announce design-build winners and recognize alumni. All events are free and open to the public, with more details forthcoming.
