Mark has become a leading Australian voice in the emerging field of cultural placemaking. He provides advice on urban design for cultural outcomes to government and the development industry.
Mark is recognised as an authority and speaker on the subject of shaping cities and places for the human experience.
Mark’s vision extends from landscape and city scale to the smallest details of place. His practice draws from his experience as cultural strategist, curator in the public realm, artist and designer and his career has taken him from Australia to projects in the US, the UK, Europe and multiple Asian countries.
Mark’s particular interest is in fully integrating art-thinking into urban design to create places of meaning for the people who will inhabit and experience them. In this capacity he also undertakes projects as a sculptor and public artist. Mark is a three-time finalist and former winner of Sydney’s prestigious art event – Sculpture by the Sea.
