Baldwin.2 As evidenced by his lengthy and distinguished professional career, Gregory Steven Baldwin FAIA, FAAR, AB ’62, MArch ’66, MAUD ’67 is remembered as a calm and articulate visionary who promoted process and collaboration. Mr. Baldwin had an ability to build consensus on the best ideas and was committed to creating livable and inspirational urban environments. He used these unique skills working on projects that span the country from Washington, D.C. and New Jersey to California, Washington state and his hometown of Portland, Oregon.

The Gregory S. Baldwin Fellowship was created in 2012, with a $500,000 gift from his family’s Lamb-Baldwin Foundation, whose board includes his wife Joan and children Benjamin and Sera. The Fellowship was created to honor, celebrate, and perpetuate his legacy. It is intended to support a top-performing student in their final semester of study in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, or Urban Design.

According to his daughter Sera Kimura, “My father thought that Harvard changed his life. Harvard opened endless opportunities for him and he always wanted to give back. He thrived within the GSD community and remained involved throughout his life. Inspired by the Rudy Bruner Award, he told me before he died that he hoped one day to create his own award to promote design through Harvard.”

In addition to receiving three degrees from Harvard, Mr. Baldwin also met and shared five of those Harvard years with his wife Joan in Cambridge. Mr. Baldwin was an intellectually rich man, a fine conversationalist, a motivating speaker, and a great collaborator who credited Harvard in his development of these attributes.
