Twenty-five years ago, Curtis Moody founded his architectural practice in an improvised office inside an old house in Columbus, Ohio, where a bathtub served as an ad-hoc drawings cabinet. As word spread of his outsized talent, Moody attracted a growing number of impressive clients and projects. Howard E. Nolan joined Moody in 1984, and newly formed Moody Nolan flourished. Today, Moody Nolan has become one of the fastest-growing architectural firms in the nation. Responsive Architecture presents the finest examples of Moody Nolan's recent work. The selection of photographs and technical drawings makes clear the firm's guiding design principles.

Author Morris Newman explores the firm's consistent design ethos, centered on humane values and the notion of responsive architecture as a mode of inquiry. The book features a selection of recent work including the Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium and the Jerome Schottenstein Center, both exciting new campus buildings at Ohio State University. These and numerous other examples reveal an architecture that responds naturally to context and client needs while remaining engaged in complexities born from experiments in transparency, layering, and massing. Responsive Architecture: Moody Nolan Recent Work is a lesson in crafting unique, memorable responses for users and visitors, thereby ensuring work that will stand the test of time.


Morris Newman is a Los Angeles-based writher specializing in architecture, urban design, and real estate planning. He is a senior contributing editor of the California Planning & Development Report and is a frequent contributor to numerous newspapers and magazines including the New York times, the Los Angeles Times, Architecture, and Metropolis.
