Lecture: Steven Ehrlich, MultiCultural Modernism

Los Angles-based architect, Steven Ehrlich, will lecture at the RIAI on 6th September on MultiCultural Modernism – his distinctive approach to creating meaningful architecture for the 21st Century based on his conviction that architecture should respond to the specificities of site and local culture. In this talk, Ehrlich traces the evolution of his philosophy, incorporating numerous examples from his recent work in the US and around the world. Citing the unique convergence of factors that challenge today’s architects to adapt to global realities, Ehrlich makes a compelling case for Multicultural Modernism as a vital and flexible architectural language for our time.

Steven Ehrlich, FAIA, RIBA, has received over 80 professional architectural awards and honors, including eight National AIA Design Awards including the AIA California Council Firm of the Year for 2003. Mr. Ehrlich is a frequent guest lecturer at universities, symposiums and museums throughout the world. He is a visiting professor of architecture at the University of Southern California and has served as a design critic at Arizona State University and Harvard University. He was also recently awarded the prestigious Maybeck Award by the California AIA that recognizes outstanding achievement in architectural design.
