Aurell Garcia Architects was founded in 2018 by architects Walter Aurell and Margaret Garcia. It is the successor firm to CPLA Architects which has been in practice since 1894 when Marshall Emery established an office on Cooper Square in New York City. Each of us comes to the partnership with years of experience and a commitment to an architecture that enhances a sense of place, and provides beauty, comfort and a thoughtful functionality. After decades designing buildings utilizing the principles of passive solar and other sustainable building technologies, green design is integral to our firm's architectural culture.
