Our Legacy

Legacy is not about what we have done, but what we have begun.

MOA is proud to be a legacy firm, meaning that we are always looking to the future and considering how to provide opportunities for the next generation. We are all committed to leaving the firm in a better place than when we first walked in the door. Legacy is caring about what we have accomplished, what our future can look like, challenging ourselves to be better tomorrow than we are today, and encouraging the next generation to care even more.

An important element of our legacy is living by our core values: business with integrity, dedication to success, constant improvement of our capabilities, confidence in our abilities, recognition of our strength in diversity, and a willingness to care about the work we do.

Through these core values — how we choose to conduct ourselves and our business — we aim to cultivate new leaders and extend the success and contributions of the firm far into the future.

Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

MOA is committed to treating all employees fairly, equally, and without bias; seeking, supporting, advancing, and sustaining a team that is diverse in background, experience, personality, and thought; and fostering a culture of inclusion that promotes involvement, innovation, and access to opportunities. An important MOA initiative in supporting diversity in the architectural community is our Robert L. Outland Woman and Minority Scholarship + Internship, which is awarded every other year.

Leadership Development

MOA is dedicated to a clear and transparent Legacy Plan that prepares younger professionals to assume future leadership roles within the firm. Our Associates Program provides a continuum of generation after generation of team, project, and business leaders for the firm. The firm’s Leadership Development Program, a prerequisite to becoming an Associate at the firm, provides a way to develop the future leadership of the firm and is also open to MOA clients and business partners.


We are always looking to strengthen our team with talented architects, interior designers, managers, marketers, technologists, and administrative staff.
