Huber is currently advancing design research to address the future challenges of sea-level rise and climate disruption in south Florida through a NOAA Sea Grant.

Huber’s research, teaching, and design work have garnered over 100 national design awards, including Progressive Architecture, AIA National Institute Honor Awards for Architecture and Regional and Urban Design, The American Society of Landscape Architects, American Architecture Awards and the American Collegiate Schools of Architecture. In 2017 Huber received the national AIA Young Architects Award for his practice, teaching, research and service to the profession of architecture.
