Robert A. M. Stern is a practicing architect, teacher, and writer. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, and received the AIA New York Chapter's Medal of Honor in 1984 and the Chapter's President's Award in 2001, among numerous other awards.

Mr. Stern is the J.M. Hoppin Professor of Architecture and Dean of the Yale School of Architecture. He has lectured extensively in the United States and abroad on both historical and contemporary topics in architecture. He is the author of several books. Mr. Stern's profound interest in the development of New York City's architecture and urbanism can be seen in his books, including New York 1930 (Rizzoli, 1987) coauthored with Thomas Mellins and Gregory Gilmartin, which was nominated for a National Book Award, an unusual distinction for a book about architecture. Seventeen books on Mr. Stern's work have been published. Mr. Stern's work has been exhibited at numerous galleries and universities. Mr. Stern served on the Board of Directors of The Walt Disney Company from 1992 to 2003. Mr. Stern is a graduate of Columbia University (B.A., 1960) and Yale University (M. Architecture, 1965).
