Marc Maxwell has degrees in both planning and architecture. Having earned his Bachelor of Urban Planning from the University of Cincinnati, and then his Master of Architecture from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his career has consistently focused on integrating thoughtful planning and architectural design into a single practice. Maxwell’s career has included academic research and teaching, corporate employment, and private consulting and design firm positions. Maxwell has specialized in several building and project types, all focused on keeping the eventual building user’s needs in the forefront of the design process, looking towards the long term value of the completed project and renovation of existing structures as the ultimate “green” environmentally conscience philosophy. Maxwell maintains strong community involvement in a number of projects and organizations, sitting on several not-for-profit Boards and providing at least 10% of his professional time annually to pro bono activities.
