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. Recently she has become highly interested in urban agriculture, permaculture, food equality, organics and horticulture. Seeing an opportunity for strengthening her qualifications and expanding upon her design interests she has returned to Europe and is currently enrolled in the MSc Landscape Architecture progamme at the Technical University in Delft, The Netherlands, mid-way through her graduate thesis entitled 'Limburg Dross: Future Spatial Forms of Industrial Productive Landscapes'. She is currently employed at LOLA in Rotterdam.
