LEED-Accredited Architect Eric Myers Appointed Chattanooga Design Studio Executive Director

Friday, March 10, 2017

Chattanooga Design Studio announced Friday that Eric Myers, a long-time Chattanooga LEED-accredited architect and urban designer, has been appointed executive director.

“I’m extremely excited to take on the tremendous opportunity of continuing to enhance and improve Chattanooga’s ‘public realm’,” said Mr. Myers. “I’ve worked closely with the Design Studio in the past and look forward to furthering its important mission as well as the vision of Christian Rushing and everyone associated with it.”

A seasoned architect and urban designer for the last two decades, Mr. Myers originally relocated to Chattanooga to work with the former Urban Design Studio, alongside Stroud Watson, Christian Rushing and others.

“It was while at the Urban Design Studio and working with visionaries like Stroud and Christian that I fell in love with Chattanooga and its potential,” said Mr. Myers. “So it’s an honor to continue my friend Christian’s leadership as the Chattanooga Design Studio furthers the vision of enhancing Chattanooga’s quality of life by educating the community about, advocating for, and facilitating excellent urban design.”

The Chattanooga Design Studio builds upon the rich legacy of the community’s former studio that operated from 1980 until 2005. The work of the Studio takes many forms: studies, charrettes and exhibitions for the general public; programs for the professional design community; facilitation for community stakeholders; consultation with the development community; and resources for local government.

“Eric is a forward-thinking, extremely talented architect and a leading member of the local architecture and design community for many years,” said CDS Chairman Ethan Collier. “Everyone associated with the Studio has worked closely with him on a variety of community projects over the years, so asking him to join us in this capacity makes perfect sense.”
