ALAN ELIOT GOLDBERG, FAIA (1931-)

Goldberg grew up in Aubondale NY.  He graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in architecture in 1954 then served two years in the Army.  He worked for several firms, including projects like the Seagram Building in New York.  In 1966, he joined Eliot Noyes in New Canaan CT. Goldberg was named head of the firm’s architectural department in 1972, made partner in 1974, and in 1977, became the sole principal under the new name AG/ENA after Noyes' passing. He curated New Canaan Modern Architects: 50 Years of Achievement 1947-1997, and designed the poster. He developed standards and designed a plaque which the New Canaan Historical Society and Museum adopted for its Design Award.

Goldberg took it down in 1977 to build a new one of his own design, later saying "It was not an easy decision to demolish a house designed by a fellow architect, but the house needed extensive work." Still owned by the Goldbergs as of 2022.
