Lorcan O’Herlihy founded Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects (LOHA) in 1994. With studios in Los Angeles and Detroit, LOHA has built over 90 projects across three continents and received over 100 awards, including the AIA Los Angeles Firm of the Year Award and the AIA California Council Distinguished Practice Award. Each LOHA project demonstrates O’Herlihy’s belief that artistry and inventive design are key to producing vibrant, social spaces that elevate the human condition via the built environment. His “Amplified Urbanism” exhibit, which relates to LOHA’s design methodology of creating fluid interactions between public and private spaces, emphasizing social and civic connections and harnessing existing ecological and infrastructural patterns, will make its public debut in Verle Annis Gallery from Oct. 22 through Nov. 13. The exhibition provokes a wider discussion about these issues not only within Los Angeles, but also across the fields of architecture and urban planning and in cities throughout the world. A book titled “Amplified Urbanism” accompanies the exhibition.

A reception will immediately follow the lecture in Verle Annis Gallery.
