Hugh Stubbins was born in Birmingham, Alabama, United States, and attended Georgia Institute of Technology before getting his master's degree from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design where he studied with Walter Gropius, a founder in Germany of the Bauhaus movement. He was to remain on the faculty there until 1972.

He formed Hugh Stubbins and Associates. Its successor company, The Stubbins Associates, merged with Philadelphia-based Kling in 2007 to form KlingStubbins.[1] The New York Times called his 1977 Citicorp Center "by any of New York's significant buildings."[2]

Stubbins died July 5, 2006, of pneumonia, at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, Massachusetts.[2]
