Eiroa Architects | e-Architects is staffed by multiple architects and experts in the design field.

Meredith Bostwick-Lorenzo Eiroa, Managing Principal in Charge

Principal Meredith Bostwick-Lorenzo Eiroa is a professional practitioner with professional license in architecture in the State of New York, including LEED AP and AIA (American Institute of Architects), with several credentials including several groundbreaking built projects at SOM (Skidmore Owings and Merrill) in New York City. Her collaborative work has been featured globally. Meredith is a proven thought leader in university design, with over 20 years of experience with global universities. She is expert in the facilitation of an integrated design process and stakeholder engagement that yield bespoke planning and design outcomes. Her portfolio of work encompasses academic programming and feasibility; campus framework planning; new construction; conservation; and renovations. Her work with several institutions from the Ivy Leagues to Liberal Arts have led to transformative outcomes, including Princeton University, MIT, Cornell Tech, UCONN, Georgia Institute of Technology, Barnard College, Wellesley College, The Dalton School, and Duke University. She is dedicated to curating dynamic processes and planning methodologies that guide the creation of innovative learning and collaborative research environments for each unique institution.

At the outset of a project, Meredith seeks to highlight each institution’s unique pedagogy, culture, and place to shape responsive physical spaces and environments through an inclusive design process—optimizing experiences, exploring opportunities, and extending possibilities of informal teaching and learning beyond the traditional classroom. She facilitates equitable design processes, helping project teams build consensus around a shared vision and unique value proposition for each project, while responding to the institutional mission, program needs, and bespoke project objectives at hand.

“The ideal campus environments emerge from the dynamic exchange of ideas between the design team and every campus and community constituent engaged in the process. Every voice can enable a deeper understanding of the physical environments and experiences needed to scaffold students in their own becoming.” says Meredith Bostwick-Lorenzo Eiroa.

Meredith is a member of the Society for College and University Planners and an active contributor to the Learning Spaces Collaboratory. For both organizations, she lends her expertise on a variety of topics that shape campus planning, including operational agility and resilience, climate action, the importance of belonging and community, and equity, diversity and inclusion. Meredith received a Bachelors of Science in Architecture at Georgia Institute of Technology and a Masters of Architecture at Princeton University.
