2019 Housing Design Forum: Lorcan O’Herlihy Keynote + Networking Happy Hour Only
As architects, we have a responsibility to cities and the people who occupy them. ‘Social Occupation’ presents the idea that architecture is a social act–a tool for engaging in politics, economics, aesthetics, and smart growth. As global cities become denser and the need for housing greater, it is more critical than ever to design spaces that promote equity, human interaction, and cultural evolution.
Even if you don’t plan to attend the full-day Housing Design Forum, you can still register to hear Lorcan O’Herlihy’s concluding keynote presentation and attend the post-forum networking happy hour.
This is registration for the keynote + happy hour ONLY. For registration for the full-day forum, visit the forum event page. Registration Closes Thursday, May 16, 2019.

Keynote Speaker: Lorcan O’Herlihy, FAIA | Founding Principal, LOHA
Since founding his firm in 1994, Lorcan O’Herlihy has utilized architecture as a catalyst of change to shape and enrich the complex, urban landscape of our contemporary cities. The work of his firm, Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects (LOHA), is guided by a conscious understanding that architecture operates within a layered context of political, developmental, environmental, and social structures. With studios in Los Angeles and Detroit, LOHA has built over 90 projects across three continents. O’Herlihy and LOHA have produced work that has been published in over 20 countries and received over 100 awards throughout the years including the AIA Los Angeles firm of the year, and the AIACC Distinguished Practice Award. In 2018, his firm was recognized as the #1 Design firm in the country by Architect Magazine’s Architect 50, an annual ranking of the top architecture firms in the country. The diverse work of the firm is recognized internationally, and ranges from art galleries, bus shelters, and large-scale neighborhood plans, to mixed-use developments, affordable housing projects, and university residential complexes. Each project by LOHA reinforces O’Herlihy’s belief that artistry and provocative design are key to building a vibrant, social space to elevate the human condition via the built environment.
Immediately following the keynote, all speakers and attendees are invited to a networking happy hour at Coughlin Porter Lundeen (801 2nd Ave #900) 4:30 – 6:00pm.
