For over a quarter century, MNLA has worked to reinvigorate, heal and mediate places that strengthen and empower communities.  We utilize the design process to engage with governing bodies, community stakeholders, and private clients to advocate for incremental and strategic advances in policies and regulations affecting the public realm, as well as ethical design decisions that add long term ecological value and performance to the project. MNLA imagines cumulative and holistic design vision for every project.  Our process always starts with the big idea and we see it as our role to maintain that conceptual thread throughout our efforts.  With over 500 built works we know how to execute our big ideas while preserving the design intent and delivering on budget and on time.  Our designs are as insightful and artful as they are performative.
