Irving B. Moses, AIA
The founder of Moses Architecture, Irving Moses, began his lifelong career in architecture in 1947 when he worked for the Small Homes Council while attending the University of Illinois. Upon graduation, Mr. Moses went on to practice at Holsman, Holsman, Klekamp & Taylor, and worked alongside famed architect Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe.
Mr. Moses's lifework is vast, and includes every type of project imaginable; grain silos, mausoleums, schools and conservatories, correctional facilities, medical buildings, high rises, low rises, hotels and motels, libraries, retirement homes, retail complexes, residentials and restaurants. Superdawg, on the corner of Milwaukee Ave. and East Devon, has become a Chicago landmark that features two gigantic animated hot dogs dressed as super heroes. Mr. Moses has served as architectural consultant to hundreds of attorneys, and has contributed as a zoning board member, an appearance review commissioner, and a judge arbitrator.
Mr. Moses has completed hundreds of projects during his career, and has been honored by the American Institute of Architects. Mr. Moses retired in 2005 and is now dedicated to his work in fine art. He currently teaches portraiture and landscape painting at the Highland Park, IL Senior Center.
