Neel Morton, AIA
Neel, a graduate of UT Austin and Principal of ooA, became a registered architect in 1985 and opened his first office in 1986. With more than thirty years of experience, Neel has successfully designed and managed the construction of a large variety of projects including office buildings, recreational facilities, restaurants, churches, medical facilities, private residences, and multi-family developments including a co-housing project in Arizona. While employed by a real estate development firm, Neel spent seven years focused in the construction industry, being in charge of construction activities for custom single family residences, cluster homes, and townhouses.
A long time interest in sustainable design led Neel to exploring such alternative building materials as adobe, rammed earth, straw bale, structural insulated panels, and more recently, insulated concrete forms (ICFs).
Marc, a graduate of Southwest Texas State University, has a B.S. in Urban and Regional Planning and has been working in the design and construction fields for over 25 years. In 2016 Marc celebrated his 10th year with ooA.
