Women in Real Estate 2020: MODA's Nina Murrell Brings Divergent Groups to Consensus

A Rice University graduate and Fulbright Scholar practicing architecture since 1996, Nina Murrell founded Murrell Office for Development and Architecture (MODA) in 2016. The Austin-based firm provides architectural services for education, culture, nonprofit and commercial clients. Her roles prior to founding MODA include New England market sector leader in education & culture for SMRT and design director / Southcentral regional education & culture Leader for Gensler.

Murrell’s published research on audience engagement and the roles of cultural facilities in their communities combines with her involvement in several cultural / educational facility associations to give her the pulse on trends in programs, space use, visitor experience design. The insights she provides her clients are additionally influenced by her leadership roles in commercial real estate associations, empowering her clients to fine tune organizational market positioning while planning for corresponding program and facilities growth.

A certified facilitator, Murrell is recognized for her success in shepherding diverse and divergent groups to consensus and shared vision. While catalyzing stakeholder contributions, she leads with a collaborative 'what if' approach that helps her clients try on opportunities for mission-advancing program and spatial synergies that delight visitors, support staff satisfaction and productivity, and optimize construction budgets.

These are just some of the reasons we chose Murrell as one of the 2020 Women in Real Estate Award winners. Connect Media’s Women in Real Estate Awards honor the achievements and inspirational stories of women who have reached respected positions of leadership and play key mentorship roles for others.
