Mark Warner AIA, LEED AP BD+C

Design Principal


I have a passion for synthesizing the complex relationships between program needs and site considerations into building designs that help shape unique, positive experiences — all in support of successful user outcomes.

I've been working with large constituent groups for more than 30 years, exploring design possibilities and sharing that vision through sketches, drawings, and — now more than ever — virtual tools. I have focused on the power of the virtual medium as an immersive experience, which has proven to be a game-changer. When skillfully employed the medium provides the opportunity for early and clear feedback, streamlining the design process, and accelerating consensus building.

Being recognized by my professional peer group is rewarding, as I have received several design awards from the AIA, including its highest regional award of excellence. But even more rewarding is watching designs come to fruition and seeing students and faculty's joy and excitement as they move into and experience their new facility. What fuels my curiosity to keep exploring and my desire to develop unique design solutions is the hope that these facilities will, in turn, inspire curiosity in others and enhance their abilities to explore their passions and bring their ideas to life.
