Every project is unique, but for Marc, a community’s goals stay at the forefront. Through 20 years of detailed architectural and urban design, he has developed his own approach to bringing technology, economic and environmental sustainability, and landscape architecture together to make sure goals like revitalization, resiliency and connected communities are more than just aspirations. They become reality.
His unique design process creates urban infill projects, new town centers, city master plans, and new communities. These include the San Ramon City Center Plan, Stamford and Stratford Connecticut TOD Master Plans, the Saskatoon City Centre Master Plan, the new Town of Holmwood in Saskatchewan, Canada, and the Poughkeepsie NY Hudson Riverfront Plan. Several of Marc’s projects have been honored with AIA, CNU, and ULI Awards.
A particular focus for Marc is working with shoreline communities to ensure they are ready for the natural disasters that come with bordering the ocean, and give them the tools for a fast recovery.
He holds both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in architecture from the University of Virginia, spent time as a visiting scholar at the American Academy in Rome, and is a licensed architect in New York and Washington, DC. In addition to his role at Stantec, he is the Chairman of the Congress for the New Urbanism New York State Chapter, and was a task force member of the US Green Building Council’s LEED® for Neighborhood Development program.
