Gary L. Brewer is a partner at Robert A.M. Stern Architects, leading the design of institutional, hospitality, and residential projects. His work includes the Spangler Center, complementing McKim, Mead & White’s 1920s master plan for the Harvard Business School Campus; and a hotel, conference center, and golf clubhouse on Kiawah Island in South Carolina. He has designed single family houses in locations such as Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts; Westport and Wilton, Connecticut; East Quogue, New York; Virginia Beach, Virginia; Charleston, South Carolina; and Seaside, Florida. He is currently working on two new projects in Charleston: a mixed-use building that involves the restoration of a historic train shed and repurposing notable Charleston single houses; and the first senior living building located on famed King Street.
Gary has lectured extensively on traditional house design, the history of pattern-book houses, and New York City clubs, and is a co-author of the recently released monograph, Houses: Robert A.M. Stern Architects (The Monacelli Press, 2021). He is a fellow emeritus and board member of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art and co-chair of the Classicist Committee. Gary lives in a classic American Foursquare house in the charming neighborhood of Park Hill, Yonkers, which he discovered while working as the architect-in-charge for the Perkins Visitor Center at Wave Hill in the Bronx.
