Studio Culture

At MBB, we have created a collaborative studio environment where architects and designers can hone their skills, expand their knowledge and make positive contributions to the built environment and the communities we serve.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

MBB is deeply committed to fostering a diverse and equitable workplace and profession. Through outreach and recruitment, mentorship and professional advancement, we support the professional development of our entire team. The diversity of our team and our commitment to serving the needs of diverse end-users increases the relevance, equity and value of our work.

Community Service & Civic Engagement

MBB strives to build community within our studio and in the world at large. Offsite team outings, networking events, office happy hours, architectural site visits, NYC Bike to Work Challenge participation, and a softball team are just a few of the ways we engage our team outside of our work. MBB’s contribution to an annual Day of Service connects us to our greater New York City community.

MBB has a strong commitment to civic engagement and leadership. Our partners serve on non-profit and educational boards, and hold leadership roles at the AIA, Architecture League and Van Alen Institute. Team members serve on a variety of AIA committees, mentor City Tech students, advise on the AIA NY’s prestigious Civic Leadership program, and sit on the 2019 NYC Energy Code Advisory Committee.

Harold Buttrick Travel Grant

The Harold Buttrick Travel Grant was established in 2016 in the memory of MBB founding partner Harry Buttrick, FAIA.

The travel grant is awarded annually to an MBB employee, and is designed to broaden the recipient’s experience and understanding of architecture. Previous recipients have traveled to Norway, Japan and South Korea to study regional architecture.


MBB’s collaborative work environment provides the support and opportunities for individuals to attain their professional and personal goals. MBB’s mentorship program promotes professional development, and there are in-house study groups to assist with ARE and LEED accreditation. In addition to full- and part-time opportunities, we also offer summer and year-long internships.
