Steven Ehrlich, FAIA
BS and B.Arch, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Steven Ehrlich is Founding Partner of Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects, recipient of the 2015 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Firm Award. Steven Ehrlich has evolved a signature global design philosophy called Multicultural Modernism, which seeks to create sustainable buildings that are infused with cultural meaning and rooted in the specificities of site, while embracing new technologies with environmental sensitivity. Multicultural Modernism was kindled in the seventies when Ehrlich practiced and taught architecture in Africa during a six-year post-university sojourn that included work as a Peace Corps architect in Morocco and a professor of architecture in Nigeria. In addition to the Firm Award, the widely published practice counts nine national AIA design awards to its credit, and Steven Ehrlich is a recipient of the AIA California’s prestigious Maybeck Award for outstanding lifelong achievement in architectural design as well as the 2015 AIALA Gold Medal Award. He is a Visiting Professor at USC and, in 2001, was named the inaugural Jon Jerde Visiting Professor.
