Eric Höweler, AIA, LEED AP,  is an Associate Professor in Architecture at Harvard GSD, where he teaches lecture courses and design studios with a focus on building technologies/integration since 2008.

He is a cofounding principal of Höweler and Yoon Architecture, a design-driven architecture practice and creative studio that believes design is an instrument for imagining and implementing change – social, cultural, technological, and environmental. Over the last 18 years, the firm has built a reputation for work that is formally and technologically innovative, socially engaged, and conceptually rigorous. Among current projects are the Memorial for Enslaved Laborers at the University of Virginia, the Coolidge Corner Theater expansion, and the MIT Museum.

Höweler + Yoon Architecture has received numerous awards including the Progressive Architecture Award, the Audi Urban Futures Award, the Design Vanguard Award by Architectural Record, the Emerging Voices Award by the Architecture League, as well as several national and local AIA awards and honors.

Their work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York, the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, the National Art Center in Japan, and the Venice Architecture Biennale.

This event is free and open to the public. Reception to follow.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, J. Meejin Yoon will no longer be co-presenting this lecture.
