Malcolm Berg

Malcolm Berg, IIDA

President and Design Director
EoA, Inc.


Malcolm Berg is the founder, president, and design director of EoA, Inc. He received his master's degree in architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, and his bachelor's with a concentration in architecture from the Massachusetts College of Art. His strong visual arts background, paired with a master's thesis which eroded thresholds between architecture and landscape, developed into a strong career in experiential design. To that end, Resort Hospitality design emerged as a distilled medium to bring architecture, landscape, and interior design into one experiential discipline. His focus on design is unequivocally about the narrative, about the human element – about the intimate relationship people have with their environment.
