Thomas Jacobs - After receiving his Diploma of Architecture from the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Switzerland, Tom moved to the United States to start his career with Krueck + Sexton Architects. At this time, he conceived some of the hallmark design elements in the Herman Miller Showroom in Chicago. Following that project, he returned Events from Swiss American Business Council to Switzerland to work with Herzog & de Meuron (1999-2002) where he was on the project teams for the Jack S. Blanton Museum in Austin, Texas and the New de Young Museum in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. An intensely formative period in Tom's early career, Tom was Project Architect for the 10-story twisting education and observation tower. He established the California office of H&deM in San Francisco in late 2000. Then, in 2002 he returned to Krueck + Sexton as the first Associate Principal. In 2010 Tom was made the first Principal of Krueck + Sexton, and is the designated future leader for the firm. Along with his work at Krueck + Sexton, Tom is an advocate for community development and planning as an active member of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning's Citizen Advisory Committee, helping to implement Chicago's GOTO 2040 Plan. He also serves as chair of the Riverside Sustainability Council, an organization he founded in 2008. In addition, Tom writes a monthly column for the Riverside Landmark on the challenges and opportunities of sustainability as a guiding principle.
