Goody Clancy Congratulates Roger Goldstein on His Retirement
Today, we celebrate Roger Goldstein, FAIA, LEED AP B+DC, Goody Clancy principal and beloved colleague of 45 years, and congratulate him on his retirement from the firm as he launches a new life chapter.
Many know Roger from his leadership and teaching roles outside Goody Clancy—as president of the Boston Society for Architecture, chair of the Boston Foundation for Architecture, and as an instructor and lecturer at the Boston Architectural College, MIT, and other institutions. Within Goody Clancy, his commitment and generosity touched every aspect of the life of our firm.
Roger’s leadership was pivotal in transitioning Goody Clancy from a Boston-centric firm into one working on college and university campuses nationwide. At the helm of our Science & Technology practice, Roger cultivated many new clients and led the creation of centers for teaching and research that are at the forefront of scientific discovery, working with 4 Nobel laureates along the way. His notable projects include the Brain & Cognitive Sciences Complex at MIT, the Couch Biomedical Research Building at Washington University School of Medicine, and the Gant Science Complex renovation at the University of Connecticut, to name just a few. In recent years, he significantly expanded the firm’s portfolio in renewing mid-century science buildings.
Over the course of his remarkable 45-year Goody Clancy career, Roger’s leadership has been exemplary. Generations of young architects have learned through his mentorship, tenacity, and insights. As he starts a new life chapter, we will be ever grateful for his contributions and friendship.
Roger’s passion for promoting scientific learning and discovery extends beyond his work as an architect. Most notably, he has ridden in 26 consecutive Pan-Mass Challenge bicycle rides, raising nearly $400,000 to-date for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and inspiring countless others to ride as well. Roger’s commitment to this event is a testament to his dedication to advancing life-saving research; it is also exemplary of the consistency and steadfastness that he brings to every aspect of his life—and from which we here at Goody Clancy have benefitted immeasurably. And his longstanding enthusiasm for sourdough bread baking has inspired many others at the firm to take it on as a hobby—often by using his starter—and to contribute to an active in-house baking blog.
