2023 Firm Award

Each year, the American Institute of Architects recognizes one firm whose passion and practice have produced distinguished architecture for a decade or longer. In November of 2023, Moto was humbled and honored to receive this recognition. The film below was produced in collaboration with the AIA PA to tell the story of our trajectory and our commitment to design excellence, which begins with a bold and shared vision with our clients, and nurtured through meticulous detailing.

FDR Park

The FDR Park Fields & Pavilions Project is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reimagine a historic, 348-acre Olmsted Park to serve 21st century Philadelphia. As part of the team led by WRT, Moto is designing a series of structures, including a fieldhouse, a central hub for concession, a maintenance building, and an open-air market pavilion for local community vendors. The project is also coordinating an on-site temporary sports pavilion for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. Image courtesy of WRT Architects.
