Twenty-five years ago, Curtis Moody founded his architectural practice in an old house in a so-so neighborhood with the bath tub serving as an ad-hoc cabinet for drawings. With entrepreneurial persistence and an outsized talent, Moody•Nolan has developed a consistent design ethos centered on humane values and the notion of responsive architecture as a mode of inquiry. Moody•Nolan’s work responds naturally to context and client needs, but the complex themes of transparency, layering and massing evoke responses in the visitor that ensure their work will stand the test of time. Responsive Architecture presents Moody•Nolan’s recent work, reveals Moody’s core values in architectural forms and looks into the firm’s exciting future.
“Often clients feel there may be a fine line, a tension, between an architect providing great service and an architect offering exceptional, creative architecture. At Moody•Nolan, we are driven to erase the line and relieve that tension by fulfilling their needs with creative inspirational architecture. We thrive on the challenge and appreciate clients that demand it.”
