Los Angeles based architect and founder of EC3, Edwin Chan MArch ’85, will be the featured presenter at a brunch program organized by the Harvard Alumni Association Shared Interest Group Harvard Real Estate Alumni Organization (HREAO) on Saturday, November 9. Edwin will share his behind-the-scenes design process and his firm’s architectural work. Questions and discussion, and an informal networking social follows. This program was organized by Macy Leung MDes ’12

Among several projects presented by Edwin will be True North, Detroit. One of Detroit’s most talked about projects, True North bridges the gap between real estate development and community building, fueled by creativity and open-mindedness. EC3 was approached by the young New York-Detroit based developer Prince Concepts in Spring 2016 with the task of reimagining the pre-fabricated Quonset Hut structure. The site, a 0.57 acre plot located two and a half miles from downtown Detroit, is situated in a quiet, spacious neighborhood which had not seen new construction in over sixty years.
