Carl F. Krebs
Carl Krebs has played an integral role in the firm’s involvement at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center. He served as the Partner-in-Charge of the Memorial for which the firm was the Associate Architect and has been instrumental in the design of the Memorial Museum. Through his guidance, the Museum has evolved from an extended dialogue with community groups, historic preservation commissions, families and survivors into a broader search for an appropriate expression for the events and the site.

In addition, Mr. Krebs’ portfolio includes many of the firm’s important civic, cultural and academic projects. He recently won a national competition to re-design Union Square on the National Mall in front of the US Capitol, a collaboration with the landscape design firm of Gustafson Guthrie Nichol. He also designed the new Portico Gallery at The Frick Collection in New York. The first expansion of the landmark building in over thirty years, the project has received several awards including a 2012 Merit Award from the AIA New York Chapter.

For over 15 years, Carl Krebs has worked with the US Department of State’s Office of Overseas Building Operations on the planning and design of embassies worldwide. His design of the new US embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia is in the vanguard of the US Department of State’s renewed commitment to design excellence. Now being constructed, the project addresses sustainable design strategies as a key and prominent message in support of the embassy’s mission of public diplomacy. Mr. Krebs is currently working on the design of a new US Embassy compound in Mexico City, a collaboration with Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects.

Carl Krebs’ commissions for colleges and universities are also an important part of his practice. He has provided planning, programming and design for Princeton University, Columbia University, Cornell University, University of Pennsylvania and Baurch College of the City University of New York.

Carl Krebs is a frequent design awards juror and panelist. His work has been widely published and has been recognized for design excellence by numerous awards. Mr. Krebs received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Harvard University and his Master of Architecture degree from Columbia University.
