Holder is an author, and Assistant Professor in the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and co-Principal of the The Los Angeles Design Group (The LADG).

Holder’s research interests include the construction of architecture as an inanimate subject, novel methods of engaging historical precedent and the production of complex form in a post-digital discipline. His recent work has been published in Young Architects 16, LogPidgin and Project. He is a frequent lecturer and guest critic at institutions across the United States and has held teaching appointments at the University of Michigan, the University of Queensland, the University of California, Los Angeles, SCI-Arc and Otis College of Art and Design. Holder’s design work has received numerous awards including the 2014 League Prize from the Architectural League of New York, multiple citations from the American Institute of Architects Los Angeles Chapter and the Boston Society of Architects Unbuilt Architecture Award. He is a Harry S. Truman Scholar, an Oberdick Fellow at the University of Michigan and a Robert B. Pamplin, Jr. Fellow at Lewis & Clark College. Holder received a Master of Architecture with distinction from the University of California, Los Angeles and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Lewis & Clark College.

Established in 2004, The LADG is led by principals Claus Benjamin Freyinger and Andrew Holder. The founders see their work as contributing to a longer history of ideas, and draw on this history to craft unexpected solutions to conventional problems in architecture and design. The firm works at all scales, with completed projects in California, Colorado, Hawaii, Minnesota, New York, Oregon and the United Kingdom. Recent work includes a free-standing, indoor-outdoor restaurant in Southern California and the installation of a contemporary picturesque garden in Loeb Library at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. The firm has received numerous professional honors and recognitions, including a 2017 Progressive Architecture Award Honorable Mention, the 2014 League Prize from the Architectural League of New York and multiple citations from the Los Angeles Chapter of the AIA.
