Eran Chen is the founder and executive director of ODA New York, a New York City-based architecture and design firm. His last name, which appears to be Chinese but is not, is a variation on the English spelling of the Hebrew word for “charm.” Chen was raised by a single mother who had emigrated from the United States to Israel. He grew up in Bnei Brak, a city east of Tel Aviv, and served four years in the Israeli army. From 2000 to 2007, when he founded ODA, Chen was a principal at Perkins Eastman NYC. He serves as a supervisory board member of the Bezalel School of Art and Design in Jerusalem and gives guest lectures there. Chen received a bachelor of architecture from the Bezalel School in 1997. He is a registered architect in the State of New York and the city of Boston and is a member of The American Institute of Architects (AIA). He is fluent in Hebrew. –MK
