Mark Graham, Architect


Over the last 15 years, Mark Graham has developed a professional doctrine that guides a focused career in environmentally-positive architecture and engineering, an understated philosophy that blends innovation, creativity, and practicality for the sake of his clients and our world. The doctrine is the result of his undergraduate studies at Dartmouth University, his graduate education at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University, a vast professional experience with a multitude of architecture firms and designers, and a profound life experience as an artist, husband, and father.
