Morris Adjmi Founder & Principal, Morris Adjmi Architects

As the founder and principal of Morris Adjmi Architects, Morris specializes in interpreting the complex forces that shape cities to create buildings that are contextual but unmistakably contemporary—buildings that may not feel like they’ve always been there but feel like they should have always been there. The resulting work, which has become a favorite of both forward-thinking developers and history-minded preservationists, has put Adjmi at the vanguard of revitalizing post-industrial neighborhoods and historic districts with an architecture that bridges the past and the present without reverting to historicism or relying on nostalgia.

Adjmi’s passion for historic and industrial architecture was formed by the castiron 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. Adjmi opened his own practice in 1997 and built on that foundational experience by reformulating this distinctly European approach into one more apt for the modern American city. Today his work is known for its thoughtful engagement with history, distinct interpretation of industrial forms, and creative expression of materials. Adjmi’s integration of tradition and innovation has yielded a body of work that is sometimes subtle, often bold, and always deeply imbued with a sense of place and purpose.

As a hands-on Principal, Morris guides the internal design of each and every one of the firm's wide-ranging residential, hospitality, commercial, cultural, and placemaking projects.
