A graduate of the Cooper Union School of Architecture and an M.Arch from the Yale School of Architecture, Gorlin applies modernist principles to a broad range of projects, including high-end residential work, apartment buildings, schools, religious buildings, master planning, and supportive and affordable housing. He is noted for his inventive use of space, light, and natural materials.

In addition to his design work, Gorlin is also a noted architectural critic and scholar. He is the subject of a monograph, Alexander Gorlin: Buildings and Projects and is the author of numerous books including Tomorrow’s Houses: New England Modernism and two definitive volumes on The New American Townhouse.
