Mark DuBois, AIA, LEED AP
Mark believes thoughtful and imaginative design is vital to the well-being and success of communities, organizations and individuals. Good design stimulates our senses, inspires our thoughts, and nurtures our well being.
Born in Boston and raised in Toronto, Mark received his undergraduate degree from Harvard in Astrophysics in 1978. After several projects with NASA and the construction of a radio telescope, he shifted his focus to the design of buildings. He received his Masters in Architecture from Yale in 1984 and worked in Paris before settling in New York.
Integrating all the parts of a project is central to Mark’s design approach. He seeks to unify how a building sits on its site and within its community, how the spaces are shaped, and how the smallest details are part of the overall concept. Mark has been an adjunct faculty member at City College and a guest critic at Columbia, Parsons, Pratt and Temple. He is LEED accredited, a member of the American Institute of Architects, the Architectural League and NCARB, and is registered in New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, New Mexico, and Texas.
