Modern Office of Design + Architecture | MoDA | was founded in 2012 by partners Dustin Couzens and Ben Klumper. | MoDA | functions as a critical Architectural and Interior Design studio interested in working at a multitude of scales and contexts.
Central to both our conceptual and built work are themes defining the role of the public realm within the urban fabric, the fundamental relationship between social/cultural ideologies and emergent form, the quantitative and qualitative implications of context or site and the nuance of materiality and tectonics.
As evidenced in our body of work, there’s no project too big or too small. Whether we’re designing an interior, a single-family residence or a large public project such as an office building, library, school, art gallery or even a fire hall our process is the same. We design collaborations rather than dictate solutions.
Both Principals, Dustin Couzens and Ben Klumper, are actively involved with the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Calgary in the capacity of both Critic and Sessional Instructor.
