MVRDVs Global Head of Business Development, Sarah Moylan, joined the office in 2019. Sarah leads the business development team, contributing to the strategic development of MVRDV globally, working with potential clients and collaborators to realize their projects with MVRDV. Sarah has returned to the world of architecture, drawn back by the philosophy and inclusive approach that MVRDV takes, after several years working with Starbucks EMEA.
Having worked in many regions, Sarah has found that the seeming nuances and/or vast differences of each locale demand flexibility and openness in order to gain insight into the place and people. As an entry point, sharing food is often her pathway to connect and pick up cultural markers; enthusiasm and curiosity for the local fare is an easy opening into conversation and exchange. “I believe it is this interaction that feeds back to the importance of connection, and of delivering architecture that enables that community”, she says.
Now living in Rotterdam, Sarah has called many places home including Milwaukee, Washington DC, London, Dublin, Los Angeles, New York, and Amsterdam. She received her Master’s in Architecture from the University of California, Los Angeles, her Bachelor’s of Fine Art from the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design in Washington DC, and is a licensed architect in the State of New York.
