Modh is the Gaelic word for method.
This word is a reflection of studio founder Philip Ryan’s Irish and American heritage and underpins an architectural process that is methodical, deliberative, and respectful in its approach to client, building, and place.
This method seeks to find particular answers to design problems through a thorough investigation of all aspects of the design and construction process; emphasizing a respectful engagement with construction professionals and clients and an optimistic examination of the opportunities of great design solutions.
Prior to forming the studio, Philip Ryan worked for Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects in New York for fourteen years in design and management leadership capacities before leaving as a Senior Associate in 2012. Projects under his design leadership and management include the Barnes Foundation, Skirkanich Hall at the University of Pennsylvania as well as involvement in the Reva and David Logan Arts Center at the University of Chicago and the American Folk Art Museum in New York.
