William Landsberg

William Landsberg was born in New York City in 1915. He graduated from the Carnegie Institute of Technology in 1936 and received his Master in Architecture degree from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design in 1938, where he studied under Walter Gropius (1883-1954) and Marcel Breuer (1902-1981). Landsberg worked for Gropius and Breuer; Shreve, Lamb and Harmon; and Skidmore, Owings and Merrill before opening his own firm in 1954. The Crichton House (1961) is believed to be his only residential work in New Canaan, Connecticut.
