US Builders Review Highlights the Sustained Growth & Design Legacy of MGA&D
US Builders Review, the magazine for leading construction executives, featured Michael Graves Architecture & Design in their architecture and design case study series. The firm, established in 1964 and founded by the late Michael Graves, continues to deliver enduring, deeply human design solutions. From the adaptive re-use of a former New York City Post Office Building to accommodate the growing needs of a school in the busy South Street Seaport, to the timeless industrial designs for the consumer market, MGA&D continues a sustained growth that finds strength in pulling from the past and looking towards the future.
Tom Rowe, AIA, Principal, was interviewed and quoted in the article, emphasizing the multidisciplinary strengths of the firm and the powerful influence on the design industry as a practice that prides itself on a legacy of extraordinary design. Tom, along with the other principals and associate principals of the firm, have led the charge in sustainability, resiliency, modernization of cultural sensitive and historic buildings and creative uses for materials in industrial design.
