About 

Erica graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University in 2007. During her studies she spent three semesters off campus, in New York City, in Italy based in Rome and traveling throughout Western Europe. During summers she trained in various architectural offices in New York, London and Los Angeles. Developing an interest in prototypologies and hybrid buildings her Bachelor Thesis took her past the architectural scale, imagining a futuristic scenario of urban densification through the utilization and reprogramming of infrastructural elements and brownfield sites in her native Los Angeles. After completing her undergraduate degree Erica spent a year working in London on residential and hotel projects and two years working in Los Angeles, on projects of all scales, predominantly residential and educational. She was part of teams on several competitions with sites around the world as well as an invited proposal for the "Uneternal City" exhibit for the 2008 Venice Biennale. Seeing an opportunity for strengthening her qualifications and expanding upon her design interests she has returned to Europe and completed the MSc Landscape Architecture progamme at the Technical University in Delft, The Netherlands in 2014. Her graduate thesis entitled 'Limburg Dross: Future Spatial Forms of Industrial Productive Landscapes' explored the potential spatial impacts of the sustainable energy transition goals of 2050 on the landscape. She is currently employed at LOLA (Lost Landscapes) in Rotterdam working on designs from small private gardens to regional masterplans as well as research and publications.
