AD Interviews: Lorcan O'Herlihy

A few weeks ago we had the chance to visit L.O.H.A. and interview Lorcan O’Herlihy in Los Angeles.

We visited Lorcan because we were very interested on his recent housing projects, which offer rich public spaces bringing back the “neighborhood” to central areas of Los Angeles, away from the suburbs.

It was interesting to hear his answer on the role of architects on contemporary society, and see a new contemporary lifestyle is materialized, addressing location, densities, materials, green strategies and community concepts, an architects response to current society issues.

You can see more on this on the residential projects by LOHA we featured earlier: Formosa 1140 and Habitat 825.
