Erika Hinrichs has been an administrator in the UG Architecture Program since 2009, working as both Interim Chair and Assistant Chair. As a Professor she has taught at all levels of the curriculum and maintains a strong connection to the students, both former and current. Professionally, she has practiced in New York City since 1990, working for seven years with Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, Architects where she was responsible for several highly acclaimed projects including the auditorium building for the Neuroscience's Institute in La Jolla, California which received a national AIA citation. She maintains an avid interest in materials- new, natural and recycled and the manner in which they relate to both each other and to the body through detail. She founded her own firm in partnership with Frederick Biehle in 1997.
