Join MdeAS Architects at its office for drinks, informal conversation, and a behind the scenes look at recent and upcoming projects. This program is part of First Friday, a monthly opportunity for League members to visit the offices of leading design practices to see work on the boards and learn more about the offices’ organization and design processes. These informal social gatherings feature happy hour drinks arranged by the host office.
MdeAS Architects was established in 1991 by Leon Moed, Raul de Armas, and Dan Shannon in New York. With an expertise in glass facades, the firm’s international body of work is varied across project types, including commercial, public space, residential, and interior projects. Founded with a shared belief in classically modern architecture, the firm emphasizes a collaborative design process.
Notable projects include the GM Building Plaza in Manhattan designed in 2006, which was selected by The Municipal Art Society for their prestigious MASterworks Award in 2007, and the 72-story First Canadian Place building in Toronto, Canada, where MdeAS Architects and B+H Architects developed an innovative new glass spandrel system used to redefine the tallest building in Canada.
Current projects include The Cubes, a low-rise retail building at 120 West 42nd Street and the expansion and renovation of a 42-story building at 330 Madison Avenue.
