Morgan gained fluency in the "art modern" style while working in Paris. As part of the architectural firm of Schultze & Weaver, he designed several of the world's luxury hotels in the 1920s, including the Waldorf Astoria, the largest, tallest, and most opulent hotel of its time. It remains one of New York's most popular "grand hotels."
