Eugene Sternberg (January 15, 1915 – June 5, 2005) was a Hungarian-born American architect known for his passionate commitment and contribution to contemporary/modernist architecture and town planning in Colorado and other Rocky Mountain states between 1950 and 1990.
He designed over 400 building projects and subdivisions, many of them iconic examples of Modernist architecture.Since his focus was on improving the quality of life of the general population, the structures he built were beautiful, useful, and cost-effective.
Most of his projects were in the category of social architecture: affordable homes, senior housing projects, public housing, hospitals, medical clinics, public schools, community colleges, community centers, churches, buildings for credit unions, labor unions, and headquarters offices for Rural Electric Associations.
As a planner Sternberg designed a number of innovative housing subdivisions and master plans for college campuses, governmental complexes, county fairgrounds, and a number of small western cities.
