MPA’s multidisciplinary design practice, rooted in the strengths and sensibilities of its partners, spans architecture, landscape, and urban design, enabling us to mine the rich and often unseen potentials of a project and site. Our award-winning projects in the United States and elsewhere receive acclaim for the skill with which they redefine their contexts at multiple scales, not only realizing innovative and technically robust design solutions, but enriching a project’s productive impact on its surroundings.

For MPA, design is a way to take things that exist in the world and intensively revalue them through invention and design innovation. Any project intervenes in natural and built environments that already exist, which have been invested by social practices long before new needs sponsor their transformation. Closely examining what is, we derive meaning and express identity through reciprocity: inside and outside, architecture and landscape, existing and new. Our multi-scalar, multidisciplinary thinking enables us to take on challenging sites and tight budgets: discovering synergies between client, program, and place, we invent solutions that transform liabilities into benefits.

MPA’s team of highly qualified staff members brings a range of backgrounds and expertise that complement the firm’s approach, from fields including architecture, landscape, urban design and the fine arts. As academics and practitioners, the partners share a commitment to mentorship that fosters an environment of collaboration and learning at all levels.
