Meet AIA Columbus’ Architecture Awards jury from Philadelphia through a series of lectures by the jury members!
In this mini session we will meet jury member Eric Oskey, AIA. Eric Oskey is a partner and Technical Director of the award-winning firm Moto Designshop (Moto) which is recognized for well-considered and crafted projects. Eric brings into being Moto’s creative vision through the sophisticated application of assemblies, material science, building systems, and construction knowledge. His understanding and use of digital production tools, creates a valuable reciprocation between digital technology and building technique. His substantial previous experience, which includes working at the Pritzker Prize winning office of Venturi Scott Brown, allows him to efficiently lead large-scale and institutional projects, while navigating their intricate dynamics. His studied approach to design is driven by an enthusiastic engagement of the making process and the descriptive tools used to reveal solutions. Moto has won numerous awards and competitions such as the American Institute of Architect (AIA) Philadelphia’s Emerging Architects Prize; the 2018 AIA Philadelphia Devine Detail Prize for the Walnut Estates Brick Screen; the 2018 AIA Pennsylvania Bronze Medal for the Walnut Estates and most recently the 2019 AIA Philadelphia Silver Medal for Arrupe Hall at Saint Joseph’s University, a Jesuit Priests Residence. Additionally, in 2018 he was individually awarded a prize as a Minority Business Leader by the Philadelphia Business Journal and in 2019 the Outstanding Asian American Business by the Asian American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Philadelphia. Eric maintains his connection to academics as an Associate Professor of Practice in the Architecture Department at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture, Temple University. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Drexel University and a Master of Architecture from Cornell University.
