About Change this

Eric Owen Moss was born in 1943 in Los Angeles, California. He received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1965. Moss continued his education, earning his Masters of Architecture from the University of California at Berkeley, College of Environmental Design in 1968 and a second Masters of Architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design in 1972.

He started his office in 1973 in Los Angeles, California. The office is composed of 25 professionals. EOMA has designed and completed a variety of project types, involving both new construction and unusual renovation and reconstitution of existing structures. The work of the office has included university facilities, office buildings, corporate headquarters, cultural institutions, theaters, galleries and exhibition spaces, restaurants, large scale urban projects and public space, housing, and private residences. What the office strives for is "not an inclination toward any single architectural vocabulary, but rather a persistent attention to the relationship between inventive, client-oriented problem solving, and the careful development of a larger vision".

Throughout his career Eric Own Moss has worked on the revitalisation of an abandoned industrial area in Culver City, California. This was done by introducing playful building designs to boost community morale and bring new businesses to the area. His masterpiece is probably the building development known as Conjunctive Points in Culver City, which is a series of concrete buildings that are freestanding and free form. This is about as close to sensual as concrete can get. There are bends, cookie cutter cut outs, levels, and abutments and bridges where one would least expect it.

Eric Owen Moss Moss taught at Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) in 1974 and was appointed director in 2002. He has held chairs at Yale and Harvard universities, and appointments at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. He was the recipient of the Academy Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1999. He received the AIA/LA Gold Medal in 2001 for the achievement of an outstanding body of architectural works. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architecture and was a recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award for the University of California, Berkeley in 2003.
