Morris Adjmi Architects (MA) interprets the forces that shape our cities to design buildings that are both contextual and contemporary. The firm’s team of architects and interior designers is guided by a shared belief that timeless ideas about beauty and harmony can be integrated into the modern built environment, but the expression of those ideas must reflect the way we live today. MA’s collaborative, research-based approach has helped establish the firm as a leader in the revitalization of post-industrial neighborhoods and historic districts with commercial, residential, and cultural projects that are imbued with a distinct sense of place and purpose.
Morris Adjmi established MA in 1997 following a 13-year collaboration with Pritzker Prize-winning architect Aldo Rossi. On that strong foundation, he built a practice inspired by the arts and by new technologies that is recognized for its thoughtful engagement with context, creative use of materials, and sophisticated designs.
Based in New York City, MA recently opened an office in Adjmi’s hometown of New Orleans. With a combined staff of more than 100, the firm has completed over 5 million square feet of built space, with another 10 million square feet currently underway in Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Tampa, and Washington, DC. The firm has won more than 25 design awards for its work.
