Lecture and book signing—Steven Ehrlich and Takashi Yanai
A house is essentially a shelter and a refuge. It can also be a metaphor for the lives of the owners and a vessel for their mementos. And, in keeping with the Vitruvian dictum that the best buildings “take note of the countries and climates in which they are built,” a house should be a site-specific reflection of its topography.
Steven Ehrlich, FAIA, and Takashi Yanai, FAIA, partners of Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects’ Residential Studio, will present their specific approach to creating residential architecture that exudes the essence of its people and its place. Dissolving the boundaries between inside and out and interpreting North African and Japanese architectural traditions are themes in EYRC’s projects, extending the character of California modernism to today’s modes of living.
A book signing for their new publication, Outside-In: New California Modernism, follows the presentation.
