Certified MBE Moody Nolan, nation’s largest Black-owned architecture firm, receives AIA’s 2021 Firm of the Year award

Certified MBE Moody Nolan, the largest Black-owned architecture firm in the country, was recently named “2021 Firm of the Year” by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). The national award is offered to just one firm each year and is the most prestigious honor extended to firms by the AIA.

The Columbus-based Moody Nolan is the 58th recipient of the award, and the first to be based in Ohio.

To be eligible for the award, firms must have produced top-notch architecture for at least a decade. However, Moody Nolan’s portfolio has stretched far and wide for much longer, with notable projects like the Schottenstein Center and Columbus Metropolitan Library’s Martin Luther King Branch.
