Architecture, design and urbanism from the Asia Pacific
Erik L’Heureux lives and practices on the equator. He has developed a series of award-winning projects that combine passive performance, pattern, and simplicity as a product of a hot and wet climate and a dense urban context. As a Wheelwright Prize recipient from Harvard University, Erik travelled the equator researching mid-twentieth-century architecture and its relationship with atmosphere and the city.
In addition to being an award-winning American architect, he is the vice dean leading the transformation of the School of Design and Environment at the National University of Singapore with over 40,500 m² of new and renovated facilities by 2023. Erik is the BA Architecture program director and a dean’s chair associate professor where he teaches a new generation of architects to be committed to the complexities and potentials of practice on the equator.
