Michael J Cipriani, AIA - Principal

In the Spring of 2003, Mr. Cipriani co-founded FORMArchitects based on a fresh idea; that work can be fun.  That simple notion developed into an award-winning architectural design firm with a culture that fosters creativity and dynamic thought.  Providing an environment where design staff can thrive has become the foundation for providing clients with the best service.  Mr. Cipriani utilizes his 15 years of experience as an architect in the Washington DC metropolitan area to provide his strong leadership skills to both clients and staff alike.  Lending his extensive experience in base building design makes him an invaluable resource on commercial interiors projects.  While maintaining an active role in projects, Mr. Cipriani enjoys developing new business through meaningful relationships with clients.
