Frederick Noyes, FAIA, is immersed in his twined passions of architecture, biology, and education. He trained at Harvard: an AB in biology (1966), and a MArch from the Graduate School of Design (1972). He was elected to the AIA College of Fellows (2001) and was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Education from the Boston Architectural College (BAC) in 2007.
Mr. Noyes was raised in New Canaan, Connecticut, where he was literally weaned on the influences of the first generation of great modern architects Marcel Breuer, Philip Johnson, and his father, Eliot Noyes. He has run his own architectural firm for over 30 years designing everything from houses and hospitals.
Mr. Noyes has remained close to academia—both as a student (a decade of graduate studies in biology) and teacher (visual studies and Harvard; lecturer in biochemistry at Harvard Extension; biology at Miles and Wheelock Colleges; and architecture at the BAC).
