“We are thrilled that Taylor has accepted this responsibility,” Mary Burnham, FAIA, said. “We look forward to taking on new design challenges and growing together as a firm.”

“I’m humbled and incredibly excited,” he said. “I’m inspired by this firm and our talented, hard-working team. My goal is to build on MBB’s record of impactful work on behalf of our clients and the communities we serve.”

Aikin is a strategic thinker and problem-solver who helps clients advance their mission. His work at MBB includes the Glass Wall projects at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the ground-up PS 19Q Marino P. Jeantet School, Sutton Place Synagogue renovations, and the Garitage Park mixed-use development in Sofia, Bulgaria. He is currently spearheading a workplace design project for an educational organization in Manhattan, a building addition for the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, and a new school for Smith Street Arts & Lettres in Brooklyn.
