Terry Hyer, AIA, Retired Founder

Terry is a true Alaskan—he's a hunter, a fisherman, and has a love of the rugged outdoors the old-school way. Every summer weekend you can find him "down at the river;" in the fall he disappears high into the mountains. But his true passion is architecture and built environments for Alaska's people. These hobbies all remain the same but he has added to the list, "retiree". Well, he's trying but we're having a little trouble letting him go.

Terry is a founding principal of ECI/Hyer. The firm began as a joint venture in the successful pursuit of Anchorage's prominent municipal library. Terry led many of the firm's award-winning design projects, including the celebrated South Anchorage High School, which was the recipient of several awards and selected as a finalist for the prestigious James D. MacConnell Award; Savoonga K-12 Replacement School; Kodiak Fisheries Research Center; and recently completed oversight of the complex Little Diomede K-12 School renovation.
