MOS is a New York–based architecture studio, founded by principals Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample in 2005. An internationally recognized architecture practice, MOS was the recipient of the 2015 Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum National Design Award in Architecture, the 2010 American Academy of Arts and Letters Architecture Award, and the 2008 Architectural League of New York Emerging Voices Award. Individual works have similarly received numerous awards and distinctions, most notably: the 2015 Global Holcim Award for sustainable construction (Asia-Pacific Region) for Community Center No. 3 (Lali Gurans Orphanage); the cover of Abitare and an AIA NY State Award of Excellence for School No. 1 (Krabbesholm Højskole), the 2014 accession of both the firm’s modular, off-grid House No. 5 (Museum of Outdoor Arts Element House) into The Museum of Modern Art, Architecture and Design Collection; the acquisition of House No. 3 (Lot No. 6/Ordos) into the permanent collection of The Art Institute of Chicago; and the selection of Pavilion No. 4 (Afterparty) for the 2009 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program. Recent work includes: House No. 10, a private residence in Upstate New York; an all-aluminum open-air school for children in Versailles, France; and the Laboratorio de Vivienda, a 9-acre master plan and welcome center in Apan, Mexico. Recent and forthcoming publications, both products of and surveys on MOS’s work, include MOS: Selected Works (Princeton Architectural Press, 2016); El Croquis No. 184 (2016); An Unfinished Encyclopedia of Scale Figures Without Architecture (MIT Press, 2019); and Houses for Sale (CCA/Corraini, 2019).
