LOHA Architecture Is a Social Act book



American architecture firm Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects (LOHA) has written a book covering 28 projects from across its nearly 30-year history.

Founded in 1994 by Lorcan O’Herlihy, LOHA is an architecture and urban design firm of twenty-five designers, with offices in Los Angeles and Detroit.

Architecture Is a Social Act: Lorcan O’Herlihy Architect showcases an edit of the studio’s projects spanning the 1990s to 2020.

The book is broken up into six sections, each addressing how architecture can “be used as a tool to engage in politics, economics, aesthetics, and smart growth by promoting social equity, human interaction, and cultural evolution.”

Projects range from tiny Santa Monica storefronts, vast urban plans in Detroit, activating main streets, houses of various shapes and sizes, and strategic plans for cities’ future growth.

Readers will gain insight into the practice’s process when engaging a new project or site, understanding its history and context, and how it is informed by the culture and ecology of the people who live there.
