The firm has also engaged in a variety of environmental analysis, product design and development, graphics, civic and promotional programming, research and community participation activities.

MPFP's experience has been predominantly planning, open space, parks and plazas, the majority of which have been out-of-town projects where the firm was the lead designer. This cumulative experience of successfully designing and managing projects at a distance has been proven by the long list of successful projects completed. During the past several years the firm has expanded its domestic and international work to include projects in the following locations: San Francisco, Phoenix, Washington DC, many projects in the New York metropolitan area; Israel; Brazil; Greece; Egypt; Turkey; Pakistan; India; Hong Kong; Japan. These projects and the utilization of modern technologies (fax, e-mail, etc.) have enabled the firm to expand its highly successful work efforts without the need to be directly 'on site'. The firm presence on these projects is usually augmented by local representation in the city / state / country in the form of local Architects, Landscape Architects or Engineers who provide the 'eyes and ears' for the firm.

The firm has worked successfully with municipalities, arts groups, architects, and artists. In the past decade MPFP has collaborated with well known architects such as Cesar Pelli, James Ingo Freed, Kohn Pedersen Fox, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, Arata Isozaki, I.M. Pei, Edward Barnes, Louis Davis, Samuel Brody, and others, and has also collaborated with internationally recognized artists such as Scott Burton, Siah Armajani, Jackie Ferrara, Walter Dusenbery, Ann & Patrick Poirier and others.
