Eric Aukee


Growing up in Wayne, Michigan, Eric—an avid reader—spent a lot of time at the local public library just a block away from his home. It was there that he cultivated his interests in a broad range of subjects, including architecture and design.

Architecture allows Eric to combine his natural proficiency in the visual arts, music, mathematics, philosophy, and science. It provides him opportunities to both dream big and do great work. Today, he has more than 30 years of experience, having led major health, cultural, educational, institutional, and commercial design projects around the world.

Eric understands the significance of mentorship and credits the many people who have encouraged him throughout his career. Committed to paying it forward, he enjoys mentoring younger generations of architects and designers as they develop their own leadership skills.

“I was nine years old, and an early personal styles/aptitude test suggested that I’d be best at one of four things: pastor, physical therapist, actor, or an architect. I dabbled in each throughout my life and chose the latter for my profession.”
