Principal, Eric Fisher AIA, LEED AP, has a four-year degree in Engineering and Visual Art from Dartmouth College and a Master's Degree in Architecture from Harvard University. He has worked in the profession for twenty years in the United States and Europe. His resume includes employment with some of the world's most recognized architects. And he has experience designing important, local work. Ten years ago, he moved back to Pittsburgh and became the architect, designer, and project manager for the new Whole Foods Market in East Liberty. Since that time, he has designed homes, businesses, restaurants, churches, museums, and even bridges here in Pittsburgh.
Mr. Fisher is a fourth generation Pittsburgher whose ongoing priority is to improve the region where his family lives. Western PA is an ever-evolving place. Over the coming decades, he believes that the region will continue to attract and develop active, energetic people who will demand a forward thinking architecture that will match their world-view.
None of Mr. Fisher's architectural peers have contracted their own buildings. Nor do they possess an engineering degree from an Ivy League school in addition to their architecture credentials. Nor have they spent four years apprenticing with Richard Meier, the "King of Rigor", detailing the Los Angeles Getty Museum. Ask any developer: Quality drawings improve the design, facilitate the construction process, and save money.
You will find no other architect in the city with Mr. Fisher's level of experience who knows Pittsburgh the way he does: Mr. Fisher may have spent four years designing the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Now, his buildings speak about Pittsburgh, the city where he grew up and chooses to live.
