Tulane School of Architecture Board Member Morris Adjmi, FAIA, TSA ’83, is attracting media attention for design work in New Orleans and New York City.

Adjmi and his New York-based firm, Morris Adjmi Architects, were recently highlighted in The Architect’s Newspaper, Tulane Magazine and Financial Times for projects in both cities.

A New Orleans native, Adjmi returned home to design The Standard at South Market, a luxury condominium and retail space. As he told Tulane Magazine in a recent feature story, Adjmi was excited to shape a modern skyline while honoring the city’s deep cultural and community roots. "I wanted to relate history to the modern condition, but in a way that wasn't referential or derivative. Like a restaurant that will be inventive with Creole cuisine, we're trying to take the best of the historic and combine it with best of what we have."

In New York City, a unique inverted cast-iron façade project completed by Adjmi’s firm caught the eye of The Architect’s Newspaper for careful and subtle design. “I think that it is both very modern and respectful of the neighborhood,” said Adjmi when commenting on the approach in the article. “It doesn’t feel like trying to copy the immediately surrounding buildings too literally but at the same time it questions and highlights how these buildings came together.”
