Multistudio Announces 2023 Promotions

June 28, 2023

We celebrate those who make Multistudio a place to explore and spark economic, social, and environmental change throughout the year. We are employee-owned and operated, and our trajectory is bright.

Today, we are 125+ people strong and span multiple practices, departments, and studio locations. This growth results from raising those when it is time to step up. Please help us congratulate our newest principals, associate principals, vice presidents, senior associates, and associates.


Amanda Harper leads our BrandX team through the intersection of graphic design, brand development, and interior architecture to create a total brand experience. With a background in communications and advertising, she understands the power of one’s brand and how it is reflected in every touchpoint. She believes that design should not only be nimble and holistic but a tool to solve any business challenge.

Martin Tovrea, AIA, leads our New Orleans studio and is passionate about transforming client and community visions and goals into tangible, beautifully-constructed buildings. With 20+ years of experience in the design and management of large-scale, complex projects, his 13-year tenure in the PHX and NOLA studios and his leadership style is reflected in our fast-expanding New Orleans team.


“Amanda and Martin have demonstrated incredible tenacity and rigor in their practices and respective studios. Martin manages our New Orleans studio while Amanda leads the brand experience practice — their leadership lends an invaluable lens to our entire studio.”

– Anthony Rohr, FAIA, National Managing Principal
