MDS/Miller Dyer Spears Inc. celebrates 25 years of design.

In November 1993 Myron Miller, Dan Dyer and Will Spears moved into their Congress Street office with a mission to create lasting environments and build a thriving architectural practice. Now located on Chauncy Street, and with an expanded leadership team that includes Amy MacKrell, James Loftus and Kate Wonkka, the firm continues to craft environments that enrich the user experience and contribute to the success of our clients.


We feel our greatest accomplishment is building our talented and dedicated team who are focused on design, quality and providing a high level of service to our clients.


Working with leading institutions, schools, not-for-profit organizations, developers and communities in the Boston area and throughout New England, MDS has cultivated expertise in a wide range of project types. From flexible research labs to specialized teaching environments, campus dining centers, student housing, performing arts venues, and collaborative workplaces, our focus is always crafting environments that enhance the experience of the students, staff and patrons who will occupy the buildings and spaces we design.

"A week doesn’t go by without  hearing compliments about the [Dana Building] project and how transformative it has been to the campus. It really has made an amazing difference to how the campus looks and feels and to how staff feel about working here.”

From the firm's founding, MDS has incorporated new technologies in its practice to integrate sustainable design principles, improve team collaboration and streamline our process. As a signatory of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2030 Commitment that seeks to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of the built environment, MDS is engaged in the continual evolution of green design best practices. We seek to create durable, high performance, and cost-effective buildings that enrich our communities.


We are proud to work with forward-thinking institutions, schools and organizations that share our commitment to sustainable design and create environments that drive innovation in our communities.
