As the founder and principal of MA, Morris Adjmi, FAIA is dedicated to understanding the history and complex forces that shape cities to create buildings that are contextual but unmistakably contemporary. Adjmi’s passion for contextual 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.


Morris established MA in 1997 following his collaboration with Rossi, and on that strong foundation, built a multidisciplinary design practice known for its thoughtful engagement with history, distinct interpretation of industrial forms, and creative expression of innovative materials. The resulting work has become a favourite of both forward-thinking developers and history-minded preservationists.
