Steven Ehrlich

Steven Ehrlich, FAIA, RIBA (born June 12, 1946) is an American architect based in Culver City, California. He is the founding partner of the practice Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects, formerly known as Ehrlich Architects.

Steven Ehrlich,FAIA,RIBA(生於1946年6月12日)是一位美國建築師,總部設在加利福尼亞州卡爾弗城。 他是Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney建築師事務所(以前稱為Ehrlich Architects)的創始合夥人。

Ehrlich was born in New York City in 1946 and grew up in the Radburn section of Fair Lawn, New Jersey. He graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1969. Upon graduating, Ehrlich spent six years working in Africa, serving for two years in the Peace Corps as its first architect in Marrakesh, Morocco. Ehrlich traveled across the Sahara and taught architecture at Ahmadu Bello University in Nigeria. He admired the simplicity and effectiveness of the vernacular architecture that he encountered in Africa. Ehrlich moved to Venice, California in 1979 and established a small residential studio. The influence from African architecture and the diverse environment of Los Angeles led to a trademarked design philosophy that Ehrlich coined “multicultural modernism,” which advocates a sensitivity to the local culture in the process of design. Ehrlich’s studio has developed into an internationally renowned firm, now called Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects, which engages in residential, civic, commercial, and educational work. His forty-people firm was awarded the 2015 AIA National Architecture Firm Award and the 2003 AIA California Council Firm Award.

Ehrlich於1946年出生於紐約市,在新澤西州Fair Lawn的Radburn部分長大。他於1969年畢業於倫斯勒理工學院。畢業後,Ehrlich在非洲工作了六年,在Peace Corps工作了兩年,成為摩洛哥馬拉喀什的第一位建築師。埃利希在尼日利亞的艾哈邁德貝洛大學(Ahmadu Bello University)穿越撒哈拉沙漠並教授建築。他欽佩他在非洲遇到的鄉土建築的簡潔性和有效性。埃利希於1979年搬到加利福尼亞州威尼斯,並建立了一個小型住宅工作室。非洲建築的影響和洛杉磯的多元化環境導致了一種商標設計理念,即Ehrlich創造了“多元文化的現代主義”,它倡導在設計過程中對當地文化的敏感性。 Ehrlich的工作室已發展成為一家國際知名公司,現在名為Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects,從事住宅,公民,商業和教育工作。他的四十人公司榮獲2015年AIA國家建築公司獎和2003年美國建築師協會加州理事會公司獎。
