Painter and architect, born in New York, America, who gained his architecture degree from Cornell University College of Art, Architecture and Planning in 1973, the year he moved to England. Joined the architectural and civic design firm Douglas Stephen and Partners; then Jeremy Dixon/BDP in 1984; produced paintings of the Royal Opera House project for Dixon, and began painting full-time in 1986. When Laubin had his exhibition at Wigmore Fine Arts in 1997, Gavin Stamp described him as “without doubt, the most accomplished and imaginative architectural artist working in Britain today”. As well as taking part in group shows, such as RA Summer Exhibitions; National Trust Exhibitions; A Vision of Britain, Victoria & Albert Museum, 1989; and La Ville Moderne en Europe, organised by Centre Pompidou in Tokyo, 1996, Laubin completed an impressive list of commissions.
