Steven Ehrlich, Board of Governors Member, received the 2011 Maybeck Prize from the California Council of the American Institute of Architects for achievement in architecture. Past winners include Thom Mayne (2007), Frank Gehry (1997), and Joseph Esherick (1992).
As Guy Horton commented in MetropolisMag.com,
When I think of his body of work what comes to mind are the different moves—the small moves and the big moves. Two projects that exemplify these are the renovation of a house designed by modernist icon, Rudolf M. Schindler in 1939 and the winning proposal for the Abu Dhabi Federal National Council building. Both exemplify a sensitivity to place, culture, and environment that Ehrlich has been refining throughout his career. Thus, while they might be in different dialects they are still of the same language.
