Mark Bacon

Design Principal, BVH Architecture

Mark’s ability to see potential excellence in projects and people makes him a successful leader in the studio and in the architecture community. As design principal, Mark works closely with the design teams and clients to explore ideas that pursue clarity in resolution, often infused by the specificity of place, human engagement, and performance-driven solutions. Resultant from his process is pragmatic optimism which elevates the everyday to amplify the ordinary. 

During Mark’s career he has worked on projects varied in scale, circumstance, and place. His commitment to the craft of architecture and dedication to elevating BVH’s design practice has been repeatedly shown, most recently in his work for the Saint John Paul II Newman Center, Scooter’s Coffee Corporate Headquarters and the Nature Conservancy Visitor Center.

Prior to joining BVH, Mark received his post-professional masters of architecture from Kansas State University. Following graduation, he relocated to Pennsylvania to work at Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Architects. Since arriving at BVH, Mark understands there is a profound opportunity to live, practice and teach in the Midwest.

In addition, Mark has taught numerous award-winning design studios as an adjunct professor of architecture at Kansas State University, Marywood University in Scranton, PA, and, currently, at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
