Eric Corey Freed (b. August 7, 1970, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American architect. Based in San Francisco, Freed is credited with helping to establish the Sustainable Design curricula at both Academy of Art University and University of California, Berkeley Extension Program.

Freed is a practitioner in the tradition of organic architecture, first developed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Founding Chair of Architecture for The San Francisco Design Museum, he was voted "Best Green Architect" by San Francisco Magazine in 2005. He is author of "Green Building for Dummies", published by Wiley in August 2007 and regular contributor to Natural Home Magazine, Luxe Magazine and GreenerBuildings.com.

His firm [http://www.organicarchitect.com organicARCHITECT] began in 1997. Since then, the firm has evolved into something much more than an architecture firm. As Eric has said, "we started doing things that weren't Architecture, and didn't make any money, but that I felt were important and needed."

The firm is noted for various community outreach programs:

[http://www.organciawards.com organicAWARDS] : an annual award recognizing the designs during the past year that are found to be both innovative and environmentally-friendly.

Events: Since 2003, organicARCHITECT produces a [http://www.organicarchitect.com/events monthly lecture series] with the leaders of green business held at The Commonwealth Club.

[http://www.organicarchitect.com/events organicEVENTS] : their free, monthly organicEVENTS list currently goes to over 8,800 people in the Bay Area, alerting them to all of the green, design and sustainability events around San Francisco.
