Episode 032: Designing a Technology-First Architecture Practice

How are architects redesigning practice to put technology at the forefront of their work?

This week we look at New York City based Mancini Duffy as a case study for implementing change over the traditional architecture studio business model. From people, to process, and even technology, this 100 year old architecture practice is being intentional to lead with change. 

Mancini Duffy is a full-service design firm specializing in architecture, planning, and interior design. With offices in New York City and New Jersey, the practice complements its century of expertise with a contemporary entrepreneurial spirit and technological skill for clients in the commercial, education, financial and professional services, retail, sports, and tech and media sectors. 


Jessica Sheridan, AIA is a principal at Mancini Duffy. With 18 years of experience in architecture and interiors, Sheridan leads a studio focused on a broad range of project types – from building retrofits to temporary pop-up event spaces and workplace interiors. She thrives on complex projects that are sustainable and resilient. Previously holding positions on the AIANY, AIANYS Boards and the AIA National Strategic Council, she currently serves as an At-Large Director on the AIA National Board.
