Since LOHA’s inception in 1990, founder and principal Lorcan O’Herlihy has sought opportunities to engage the ever changing complexities of the urban landscape with respect to spatial and experiential information.

In 2004 the Architectural League of New York selected Lorcan O’Herlihy as one of the eight “emerging voices” in the United States.  In 2009 Lorcan was elevated to the prestigious College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects, an honor awarded to members who have made significant contributions to the profession.  Lorcan’s commitment to design excellence in commercial, educational and residential projects has earned over 60 national and local design awards, including the 2010 AIA / Los Angeles Firm of the Year Award.  The firm’s work has been recognized internationally with numerous exhibitions and publications including The New York Times, MARK, Wallpaper*, A+U, Architectural Record, Architectural Review, Abitare, as well as a book on LOHA’s completed works.

Lorcan’s professional practice has been coupled with intellectual rigor since the inception of his office. He has taught and lectured extensively over the last decade, including the Architectural Association in London, Southern California Institute of Architecture [SCI-Arc], Cranbrook Academy of Art, Michigan, Columbia University, New York and currently holds the Jon Adams Jerde chair in Architecture at the University of Southern California.

Previously, Lorcan worked at I.M. Pei and Partners on the celebrated Grande Louvre Museum in Paris and as an Associate at Steven Holl Architects on projects in both New York and Europe.
