Stan Allen


Stan Allen is a registered architect, principal of Stan Allen Architect and dean of the School of Architecture at Princeton University.

Prior to his arrival at Princeton, Allen was director of the Advanced Design Program at the Graduate School of Architecture at Columbia University. He is the author of Points + Lines: Diagrams and Projects for the City, and, most recently, Landform Building: Architecture's New Terrain. He heads the firm Stan Allen Architect, which has recently completed houses in New York and Los Angeles. Current projects include buildings for the Botanical Garden at the University of Puerto Rico, a contemporary Music Center in Taiwan, and ongoing architectural work at Fresh Kills Reserve in Staten Island. Responding to the complexity of the modern city in creative ways, Allen has developed an extensive catalog of urbanistic strategies, in particular looking at field theory, landscape architecture, and ecology as models to revitalize the practices of urban design.
