Erick Mikiten has taught architectural design at the University of California at Berkeley and continues to lecture there and participate in design reviews as a guest critic.
Having worked in architecture since 1981, Erick's experience includes civic architecture, multi- and single-family residences, transitional housing and housing for the homeless, commercial buildings, educational facilities, and renovations. Mr. Mikiten trained at internationally acclaimed architect Charles Moore’s firm Moore Ruble Yudell in Santa Monica, California, where he worked on commercial and religious buildings. Mr. Mikiten co-founded Mikiten Architecture in 1991, and is an expert in design for people with physical disabilities. As a life-long wheelchair rider and experienced architect, he has a deep respect for individual needs and desires, and brings this awareness to all our clients.
Erick has worked with non-profit developers Affordable Housing Associates, Resources for Community Development, Satellite Homes, Inc., Housing Consortium for the East Bay, and B.O.S.S. (Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency) to create HUD- and other public-financed housing in Berkeley, Oakland, and Concord. He consulted for the Trammell Crow Company on a large-scale development of accessible housing, and has been an expert witness testifying on access codes.
Erick's tour books for wheelchair riders are published by the California State Coastal Conservancy. They cover beaches and waterfronts in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles. He has consulted for the Coastal Conservancy on access improvements on a number of projects, and created a new beach design for the newly acquired Gleason’s Beach north of San Francisco.
