Morris Adjmi, FAIA established MA in 1997 following a 13-year collaboration with Pritzker Prize-winning architect Aldo Rossi. On that strong foundation, Morris built a design practice known for its thoughtful engagement with history, distinct interpretation of industrial forms, and creative expression of materials.
We create buildings that stand out by fitting in.
Each design decision is guided by a deep appreciation for and understanding of the integral architectural, artistic, cultural, civic, environmental, and economic forces that shape a project. This rigorous, research-based approach has helped to establish MA as a leader in the revitalization of post-industrial neighborhoods and historic districts with projects that are imbued with a distinct sense of place and purpose.
The firm strives to maintain a strong sense of community and culture by creating an enriching work environment complemented by engaging programming. We are dedicated to fostering a mentoring environment to facilitate professional growth and providing an atmosphere in which everyone can flourish.
Morris Adjmi loves cities.
As the founder and principal of MA, he is dedicated to understanding the history and complex forces that shape them to create buildings that are contextual but unmistakably contemporary. The resulting work has become a favorite of both forward-thinking developers and history-minded preservationists.
Adjmi’s passion for historic and industrial architecture was formed by the cast-iron French Quarter balconies and crumbling Creole cottages in his hometown of New Orleans and refined in New York and Milan during a 13-year collaboration with Pritzker Prize-winning architect, Aldo Rossi.
