New York

MOS Architects is a New York-based architecture studio, founded by principals Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample in 2005.

MOS is an acronym of their names and their reflection of a shared desire to be horizontal and fuzzy. MOS began around an oversized table, a surface for collecting, gathering, and working through a range of design experiments – a make-believe of architectural fantasies, problems, and thoughts. They have now grown a little but still remain around a large table, working together on each project through playful experimentation and serious research. An internationally recognized architecture practice, MOS Architects was the recipient of the 2015 Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum National Design Award in Architecture, the 2010 American Academy of Arts and Letters Architecture Award and the 2008 Architectural League of New York Emerging Voices Award.
