Short biography
Mr. Brooks is a principal of Turner Brooks Architects, based in New Haven. The firm, established in Starksboro, Vermont, in 1972, initially designed (and often built) small houses and community facilities local to the area. The firm’s current work includes a new building for the performing arts at the campus of the Cold Spring School in New Haven and the conversion of an existing Masonic Lodge into space for art studios and the performing arts in West Haven, Connecticut. Recently finished are the Cushing Collection at the Yale School of Medicine, a small museum and archive space exhibiting the work and collections of the pioneering brain surgeon Dr. Harvey Cushing, and a new campus with housing and community facilities at a center for the treatment of children with autism spectrum disorder. Student housing at Marlboro College in Vermont, the Gilder Boathouse for Yale University, the Richard W. Woolworth Library of the Stonington Historical Society, and the Gates Center for the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine, are among the firm’s published institutional projects. The monograph Turner Brooks: Work was published in 1995. His work also has been featured in books and magazines domestically and abroad and in an exhibition at Middlebury College in December of 2010. He has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Graham Foundation, and he was awarded a Mid-Career Rome Prize Fellowship in 1984. He has taught at Carnegie Mellon University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the University of Miami, Middlebury College, and the University of Vermont. Mr. Brooks received B.A. and M.Arch. degrees from Yale University.
