Architect Spotlight: Reed Kroloff
As Dean of Architecture at Tulane University in New Orleans, Reed Kroloff shepherded the school through the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and co-chaired the commission charged with developing the initial master plan for rebuilding the city in the wake of the storm and subsequent flooding.
Kroloff left New Orleans in 2007 to become the director of the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He continues to promote excellence in urban design through his writing and his consulting firm Jones | Kroloff. He is also an active organizer and adviser for dozens of New Public Works competitions designed to choose architects for high-profile projects, including the Motown Center in Detroit, and a signature building for the University of Connecticut campus (the contract for which was awarded to Frank Gehry).
