Although Matt Shoor joined Lynn Fritzlen Architect in 2021, his professional interaction with Lynn stretches back a decade. Their long history of successful teamwork began in the early 2010’s when they were colleagues on the AIA New York Chapter Professional Practice Committee, and where they collaborated on the planning and execution of award-winning public events and programming. Matt has nearly 15 years of experience in the architectural industry, largely in the New York metropolitan area, and has worked on a wide variety of building typologies over the course of his career. Matt has worked on projects of exceptional scale, and is no stranger to the complexity associated with multiple systems and utilities competing for a finite quantity of space in a building. He also understands the importance of negotiating the needs of multiple project stakeholders, and welcomes the opportunity to work with owners, public agencies, and other interested parties.
