Architect Magazine: Jonathan Moody Reflects on AIA Architecture Firm Award
Jonathan Moody shares with Architect Magazine the lessons he and his firm will carry into the future.
“Last December, my firm was presented with perhaps its most significant project: to honor our title as the recipient of The American Institute of Architects 2021 Architecture Firm Award. Any firm winning this award—past and future—invariably feels some pressure. However, for us, the pressure felt a little heavier. Internally, we aspire to live up to high standards. Externally, we face obstacles that our firm alone shouldn’t have to solve. For starters, the industry’s call for equity shouldn’t be a metric, but rather a precursor to great architecture.
Through it all, we continue to serve as an example for all firms. That said, this past year came with its fair share of successes and challenges. Here are key lessons and takeaways that we will remember for years to come.”
