Edie Cherry is one of the most prominent female architects in Albuquerque with an outstanding career as a designer and teacher. She is responsible for the education of several generations of New Mexico architects and is highly respected in the architecture community.

Edie Cherry was educated at Rice University, where she graduated cum lauda. She completed her architectural internship at Caudill Rowlett Scott in Houston where she worked for seven years for her former professor, Bill Caudill. She was the first woman to be elected an Associate in the firm. Edie moved to Albuquerque in 1972 to teach architecture at the University of New Mexico, where she taught design studio, programming, and historic preservation. She held administrative positions including Acting Dean and Director of Architecture and became Professor Emerita in 2000.

Edie and Jim See, her husband, started Cherry/See Architects, now Cherry/See/Reames Architects, in 1977 and she was with the firm part time while teaching. In 2000, she joined the firm full time and has concentrated on architectural programming, planning, historic preservation and landscape planning. She has authored several publications on programming including a text book, Programming for Design, From Theory to Practice, which has been translated into Korean, Japanese, and Mandarin Chinese. Edie is a fellow in the AIA and a licensed landscape architect.

The Life in Architecture Lecture series is an annual lecture that brings prominent architects to speak about their work and ideas. The lecture series first started when AIA Albuquerque hosted the city of Albuquerque’s Tricentennial architecture month in 2005 and Bart Prince was the speaker. This annual event has continued for the past seven years and has included other prominent speakers like Paolo Soleri, Antoine Predock, Rick Joy, Will Bruder, Eddie Jones, Rob Quigley and Ed Mazria. AIA publishes a commemorative poster honoring the career and contributions of each one of the speakers.
