Tom Carruthers is a registered architect, artist, and co-founder of Dream The Combine. He is also co-owner of Jacobsson Carruthers, a metal fabrication studio in NE Minneapolis.
Tom's early work consists of site-specific sculptures that explore landscape as metaphor and image as space. He was lead assistant for artist Ursula von Rydingsvard, helping with the construction of over 20 works, including Ogrommna at the North Carolina Museum of Art and Katul Katul, a 1% for the Arts permanent installation at the Queens Family Courthouse, NY. As a licensed architect, he worked alongside the late Charles Gwathmey and at Diller Scofidio + Renfro, developing early concept proposals with formal strategies that integrate context, complex geometry, and material construction.
Tom earned his Bachelor of Arts in drawing and sculpture from Brown University, where he received the Gilbert Stuart award for best work in the annual juried show. He earned his Master of Architecture from Yale School of Architecture.
