Steven Ehrlich, FAIA, Lead Juror, learned early on, the significance of how architecture responds to culture and environment. Six years in Africa (including two years with the Peace Corps as their first architect in Marrakech, Morocco, and teaching at Ahmadu Bello University in Nigeria) taught Ehrlich the sustainable wisdom of indigenous architecture.
Selected in 2003 as the California AIA Firm of the Year, Ehrlich Architects has won eight National AIA Awards. Current projects include the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and the School of Earth and Space Exploration both for Arizona State University, the Art Building at the University of California, Irvine, five residential towers in Taipei, Taiwan, and a large villa in Dubai.
In 2007, the Palm Springs Art Museum curated a retrospective show, Multicultural Modernism, in conjunction with the release of the firm’s sixth monograph by Images Publishing. Ehrlich has been a guest critic at USC, Harvard, Yale, and UCLA, and lectures extensively in the US and abroad.
Susan Piedmont-Palladino is an architect, a professor of architecture at Virginia Tech’s Washington-Alexandria Architecture Center, and a curator at the National Building Museum. Her most recent exhibition, Green Community, was featured at the Museum from October 2008 through November 2009. She is the author of several books including Green Community, Tools of the Imagination and Devil’s Workshop: 25 Years of Jersey Devil Architecture and a contributor to Design Professions and the Built Environment. Her current project at the Museum is Intelligent Cities, a multi-faceted exploration of the intersection of information and communication technologies with urban design and planning. The Intelligent Cities book will be available in December 2011.
Craig Curtis, FAIA is a partner at The Miller Hull Partnership and was elected to the College of Fellows in 2008. He has served on numerous professional and community committees, and has lectured nationally and internationally on the firm’s work and its commitment to sustainable design.Craig’s spirited design exudes a regionalist approach to modernism and a passion for sustainability, which has resulted in many award-winning projects. As a result of his tireless advocacy for the profession, his work has had widespread impact strengthening communities and has spurred policy change. Collaboration is evident in his work and is facilitated by an exploratory design process that cuts across disciplines, bringing together artists, interpretive designers, landscape architects, engineers and clients. His ability to work collaboratively while maintaining design consistency and technical excellence is one of Craig’s greatest strengths.

At UNL Jeff runs FACT (Fabrication And Construction Team), an academic/professional collaborative design lab that offers architecture students a forum for exploration of the complex relationships between thinking (conceiving, designing, theorizing) and making. FACT a “do-tank”, a lab in which ideas and new knowledge are developed though action as well as thought. Working with Min | Day, FACT engages design intensive projects and creative,non-profit clients in collaborations that span design and construction. The widely published work of the firm has garnered numerous national and regional AIA awards and other honors including the 2007 AIA California Council Emerging Talent award, the 2009 New Practices San Francisco award, Residential Architect’s Rising Star award, California Home + Design’s 10 To Watch and Architectural Record Magazine’s 2009 Design Vanguard feature.

Cade Hayes was born and raised in the Chihuahuan Desert. He attended Architecture school in the desert plains of West Texas where he received his Master’s of Architecture at Texas Tech University in 2002. Upon graduation Cade’s fascination and love for the desert and desert architecture led him to journey west to the Sonoran desert where he joined Rick Joy Architects. During his 5 year experience at Rick Joy Architects, he became a vital member of the studio, working on nearly every key project in the office at that time. In the fall of 2007, upon receiving his architecture license in the state of Arizona and starting his own practice, he received a commission for a private residence called the “Tucson Mountain Retreat”. This project became a catalyst for the formation of DUST, a multi-disciplined partnership between Cade Hayes and Jesus Robles that is focused but not limited to Architecture, Construction, and Fabrication. The poetic pursuit of light, atmosphere and materiality is of equal importance to us both as is the actual care, craft and hands that all go into the execution of making beautiful inspiring living spaces, all of which will hopefully be evident with the completion of the Tucson Mountain Retreat in early 2012.
