Erin E. Moore

Erin E. Moore is a professor of architecture and associate director of the Environmental Studies Program at University of Oregon.

Moore’s work explores the architectural space of fossil fuel consumption, multi-species design, and climate justice. She uses her critical spatial practice FLOAT as a testing ground for designing explicit relationships with the material and biological context of buildings.

Moore’s Pipeline Portals was a 2020 finalist in the global Architizer A+Awards in the Architecture + Landscape category, and the experimental Outside House was awarded its Building Voices award. Other recent projects includes Topography: Remapping the Space of Fossil Fuel Transportation, installed at Palazzo Mora in Venice (2021); the essay Four Lessons on Land, Space, and Resistance  in Survivance, published by e-flux Architecture (2021); and OUR: Collective Future Project, commissioned by the Dhillon Marty Foundation under the aegis of UNESCO’s Management of Social Transformations program (2017).

Moore holds an M.Arch from University of California, Berkeley, and a B.A. in American Studies from Smith College. She is a registered architect in Oregon and Arizona.
