J. Robert Hillier, Studio Hillier Principal34m | Jun 20, 2023
In episode 40 of the Princeton Podcast, our host, Mayor Mark Freda, welcomed J. Robert Hillier, one of the leading and most highly-respected architects in the United States, known for having built one of the largest and most successful architecture firms in the world.
Robert Hillier, or Bob as he prefers, is the founder of Hillier Architecture and now Principal at Studio Hillier here in Princeton. Bob has been on the core faculty of Princeton University’s School of Architecture since 1992 where he teaches two graduate seminars and has served on the American Institute of Architects National Fellowship Jury and as Chair of the Selection Committee for the Dean of Princeton’s School of Architecture.
In addition to describing several of Mr. Hillier’s more than 4000 architectural projects, many of which are here in Princeton, Bob discussed his business collaboration with his late wife, Barbara, and how in May of 2019, the New Jersey Institute of Technology renamed its College of Architecture the J. Robert and Barbara A. Hillier College of Architecture and Design.
Bob Hillier is certainly one of our community’s most remarkable Princetonians and it is our pleasure to have welcomed him on the Princeton Podcast.
