At its most recent meeting, the Docomomo US Board of Directors officially welcomed two new members: Katie Horak of Architectural Resources Group and Eric Keune of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
Katie Horak is a Principal at Architectural Resources Group and manages the firm's Downtown Los Angeles office. Her work at ARG ranges from rehabilitation projects on some of Los Angeles’s most recognizable landmarks to large scale planning projects, including SurveyLA. In addition, Katie is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at USC, where she teaches graduate-level courses in historic resource documentation methods, and she is the founding President of the Southern California Chapter of Docomomo US.
Architect Eric Keune is a design director at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in Chicago, and a trained architectural historian, author and artist. A student and teacher of Modernism, Eric’s design work is guided by three principles – the integration of architecture and landscape, advancing the science of tall buildings, and exploring the dialogue between structural and programmatic expression. Working in the modernist idiom with a focus on craft and excellence in making, his works address the context of contemporary visual arts and 21st century building technology.
