Erwin Hauer (born 1926) is an Austrian-born American sculptor who studied first at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna and later under Josef Albers at Yale. Hauer was an early proponent of Modular Constructivism and an associate of Norman Carlberg. Hauer patented these designs, developed the technologies to manufacture them and installed several such walls in churches in Vienna. Hauer continued to work as an independent sculptor in Bethany, Connecticut. Erwin Hauer taught at Yale University School of Art from 1957 until 1990. His sculptures are in many public collections, including those of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Wadsworth Atheneum, the Museum of the National Academy of Design, and others.
