Bob Mohr is an urban designer and a licensed architect. His broad interests stem from a belief in the potential of architecture and urban design to reveal, to engage and to speak to profound questions of social, political and environmental urgency. An American citizen born in Libya and raised in both Pakistan and Iowa, Mohr has worked across the US, Europe and North Africa.
Prior to relocating to Rhode Island, Mohr was studio director of Oualalou+Choi, a medium-sized practice based in Paris and Casablanca. He spent six years in Paris directing projects at varied scales from the domestic to the urban, all of which explored how an expanded role for the architect can lead to more successful and meaningful projects. Previously, he led projects at Mithun in Seattle and Leddy Maytum Stacy in San Francisco.
Mohr holds a Bachelor’s of Architecture from Iowa State University and both a Master’s of Science in Architecture Studies and a Master of City Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has taught at MIT, Roger Williams University and Rice University’s Paris studio.
