Brian Moore is most passionate about projects that combine user activity and experiences; those driven not only by function or look, but also by how they feel. He enjoys creating dynamic spaces with features that can evolve and change in unexpected ways. Drawn to the concept of play in architecture, he is always looking for ways that users can interact with the spaces around them and introduce elements of play into the building itself. This is most evident in his work with recreational/hospitality architecture and past role at Disney Parks and Resorts.
Since joining Quinn Evans Architects in 2015, Brian has worked as a lead designer and construction administrator on numerous projects including Tower on the Maumee and the 7.Liv development in Detroit, as well as Bay City’s Crapo Building. Currently, he is also part of the design team rehabilitating Michigan Central Station. For him, the greatest benefit of working at QEA has been the ability to take on ownership of projects that have pushed him out of his comfort zone and accelerated his architectural career.
A huge foodie, Brian loves trying to cook new things and mixing handmade cocktails at home. He also follows the booming Detroit restaurant scene very closely with a never-ending bucket list of new places to try. When not at a Detroit restaurant or bar, he can be found kayaking on Belle Isle or the Huron River, biking around the city, or playing board games.
Brian holds a master’s degree in architecture from University of Detroit Mercy. He is active in Detroit’s design community through Detroit Month of Design and AIA Detroit, and was in the first cohort for the AIA Detroit Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program.
