mossArchitects is proud to welcome a new designer, Dylan Stein, to its team. Dylan brings the Garfield-based firm to a staff of fifteen, with eight registered architects and four LEED certifications. Stein graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a B.A. in Architectural Studies and continued on to receive his Master of Architecture degree from the University of Cincinnati in 2019. His interest in small scale, hands-on design has brought him as close as Pittsburgh, where he studied stained glass beneath a local artist, and as far as Copenhagen, Denmark, where he studied furniture design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. The opportunity to be a part of the Pittsburgh revitalization has guided the Pennsylvania native back home, bringing with him a unique sense of design and materiality to the team at mossArchitects.
