Learn about the visionary Parliament Building project in Abu Dhabi and other current projects by Ehrlich Architects, while Design Principal Steven Ehrlich illustrates how the ancient wisdom of vernacular architecture informs a more sustainable future.
From the ARCHITECT'S NEWSPAPER 01.27.2011:
"Ehrlich Architects, a 32-person firm based in Culver City, has won the competition to design a new parliament complex for the United Arab Emirates in Abu Dhabi, beating out major international firms Foster & Partners, Zaha Hadid Architects, and Massimiliano Fuksas Architects. It's the most remarkable upset victory for a Los Angeles architect since then-upstart Frank Gehry in 1987 triumphed over three Pritzker Prize laureates in the contest for the Walt Disney Concert Hall. At a time when California offices are especially hard-hit, this victory of David over Goliath is a morale booster for every struggling firm."
