Craig Newick brings a wide variety of experiences to any design project. He has worked in the offices of some of the country's most well known architects where he has worked on practically every building type at every scale. He is as adept at addressing the intricacies of the design of a door handle where every decision and every millimeter counts as he is in planning large institutional buildings with complex programs which require multidisciplinary design teams to execute.
Craig Newick is a registered architect in the State of Connecticut, a member of the American Institute of Architects and the Connecticut Society of Architects. He has a Master of Architecture degree from Yale University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Architecture from Lehigh University. In 2000, he won an Honor Award from AIA Connecticut. In 1996, Newick and his frequent collaborator, Linda Lindroth, were selected by the Architecture League of New York for their prestigious Emerging Voices lecture series. In 1998, Craig Newick won a fellowship in sculpture from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts.

In 2002 they were invited by the Walker Art Center to participate in a competition for the Telematic Table. Also in 1988 Lindroth + Newick won an Honorable Mention for the project entitled Camera Obscura: The Camera as Physical Space in the Pittsburgh Corning Architectural Design Competition. In 1989 they won another Honorable Mention in the National Peace Garden Design Competition in Washington, DC and in 1992, when the winning entry failed to receive approval from the National Fine Arts Commission, they were invited to participate in a new phase of the design for the Garden. Their set design for the Hartford Ballet, Articulating Wing, won the Ballet's American Visionary Set Design Competition, and then went on to win a 1990 Annual Design Review Award in ID/International Design Magazine's environments category. The project entitled Simultaneous Space (which won a 1991 Annual Design Review Award from ID Magazine) earned them a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts/New Forms Regional Initiative (1989-90).
