NINA MURRELL, AIA, LEED AP, NCARB

Founder / Principal

"What's most important? What's most alive? What is hidden that is seeking to be seen? I partner with you and your stakeholders to turn AIR into SOLID."


A Rice University graduate and Fulbright Scholar practicing architecture since 1996, Nina Murrell's roles prior to founding MODA include New England Market Sector Leader in Education+Culture for SMRT and Design Director / Southcentral Regional Education+Culture Leader for Gensler.

Her published research on audience engagement and the roles of cultural facilities in their communities combines with her involvement in several cultural / educational facility associations to give her the pulse on trends in programs, space use, visitor experience design. The insights she provides her clients are additionally influenced by her leadership roles in commercial real estate associations, empowering her clients to fine tune organizational market positioning while planning for corresponding program and facilities growth.

Nina is a certified facilitator, recognized for her success in shepherding diverse+divergent groups to consensus and shared vision. While catalyzing stakeholder contributions, she leads with a collaborative 'what if' approach that helps her clients try on opportunities for mission-advancing program and spatial synergies that delight visitors, support staff satisfaction and productivity, and optimize construction budgets.
