Bio: Mark Cavagnero, FAIA, has guided his firm’s growth into a design-centered practice serving clients internationally. He began his career working for Edward Larrabee Barnes in New York, then founded Mark Cavagnero Associates in 1993. Since that time, the practice has grown to a staff of 80+ while sustaining a focus on its strong social commitment to generating a body of award winning, public-serving projects. The firm’s work seeks a timeless quality, visible in a broad range of renovations, additions and new construction work for various building types from education, museums, courthouses, civic buildings, theaters, and residential buildings.

Mark’s firm draws careful attention to balanced natural light through all parts of the building, to support activities and wellness of the occupants of each project. Approach is focused and deliberate in finding the optimal balance between character, form, and (the inherent richness of) DELETE material. Site analysis is emphasized, with the conviction that a thoughtful relationship with the immediate site makes the building feel more comfortable and uniquely appropriate for its occupants.

Mark was this years’ featured keynote speaker at the Monterey Design Conference; he has been personally recognized with the AIACC 2010 Distinguished Practice Award and the AIACC 2015 Maybeck Award for outstanding lifetime achievement, among many other accolades. He is currently engaged on projects throughout North America, including the recently completed San Francisco Moscone Center Expansion; San Francisco Conservatory of Music; the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences, Quest Diagnostics Headquarters in New York; as well as projects for Salesforce spanning across Asia, North America and Europe.
