Eric Wright

Eric Charles Wright is a practicing architect and teaching academic. He coordinates the 3rd year architecture programme at the University of Johannesburg and runs the 3rd and 1st year design studios. The philosophy and approach employed in both years of teaching investigates the changing nature of Johannesburg as a city, a landscape and a people. In his practice, in partnership with Claudia Morgado, Boom Architects’ work explore these urban-and-people focused concepts with a critical underpinning – the relevance of contemporary architectural and urban approaches; where community/client discourse and exchange become significant design and implementation tools for a people-driven methodology to understanding and making architecture.
