Front Cover
Images Publishing, Nov 25, 2006 - Architecture - 271 pages
Over twenty-five years, the arc of Steven Ehrlich's career has afforded him a steady flow of projects for testing ideas with which he has constructed his own distinct architectural identity. Steven Ehrlich Architects is a California-basedpractice whose designs extend the traditions of architectural innovation and the fusion of technology with cultural and environmental sensitivity. What makes Ehrlich unique among his peers is the influence of his early career years spent in Saharan and sub-Saharan Africa. This book is a meticulous exploration of the four major elements of Ehrlich's mulitcultural modernism. The courtyard, as an antidote to density stress, is examined and illustrated by both residental and community projects; further projects examine an openess to change and technical innovation as embodied by Los Angeles.
