Robert Waterman Gardner (1866 - September 7, 1937) was an American architect noted for pioneering the use of reinforced concrete in residential architecture. He studied architecture with Calvert Vaux and Clarence Luce from 1887 to 1891, and was operating on his own as early as 1905. His 1909 partnership with John Jay McKelvey in developing the 'Along-the-Hudson-Park' in Spuyten Duyvil, New York gave him a broad canvas on which to put his design ideas in practice. Many of the single-family homes built there were made to his designs, and the collaboration would continue into the 1920s with the construction of McKelvey's Villa Rosa Bonheur and Villa Charlotte Bronte. He would become president of the New York Society of Craftsmen.
