Note biographique

Douglas Kelbaugh was born in Brooklyn, New York, on January 25, 1945. He studied architecture at the Princeton University, New Jersey and received his Master of Architecture in 1972 after what he worked as architect and urban designer for the City of Trenton, New Jersey. During his employment at the City of Trenton, he completed, in 1975, the Kelbaugh House, his solar house in Princeton. In 1978, he founded Kelbaugh + Lee Architects with the architect Sang Lee and completed most of his architectural projects for passive solar buildings, including residences, between the end of the 1970s to the mid 1980s: the Milford Solar Conservation Center (1981) in Milford, Pennsylvania, the Roosevelt Senior Citizen Housing Developement (1983) in Roosevelt, New Jersey or the PA Technology Headquarters (1984) in East Windsor, New Jersey. He also participated in many national and regional design competition, including the design competition for the Monroeville Civic Center in Monroeville, Pennsylvania (for which he obtained the first prize), and the Cultural Arts Pavilion in Newport News, Virginia (for which he obtained the third prize).

In the late 1990s, he moved to Seattle and founded the firm Kelbaugh & Calthorpe. Douglas Kelbaugh was also teaching as visiting professor in schools of architecture in the USA, as well as in Europe, Japan and Australia. He was chair of the Department of Architecture at the University of Washington from 1985 to 1993 and was the dean ot the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan between 1998 and 2008. His projects of passive solar buildings were presented in many exhibitions between 1978 to 2008. His project of the Kelbaugh House, in Princeton, was presented at the Canadien Center for Architecture, in Montréal, for the exhibition "1973: Sorry, Out of Gas" (November 2007 to April 2008), an exhibition about the architectural innovation on the field of sustainable architecture during the 1973 oil crisis.
