Earning a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, Mark graduated magna cum laude with honors. Whilst at school, he participated in the Upstate Student Chapter of ASLA as Vice President and was a member of Sigma Lambda Alpha Honor Society. Mark’s senior thesis explored how urban food markets are used as a design tool in Barcelona, Spain. His project analyzed 40 municipal markets and their surrounding communities. This project, along with a thematic studio focused on the landscape of food, has helped feed Mark’s interest in defining the role landscape architecture plays in the food system.
