Fiedler Marciano Architecture was established as a design practice in 2006 by principals Mark Fiedler and Martin Marciano. The firm employs a design approach that is simultaneously rigorous and intuitive, in the pursuit of innovative and versatile design solutions on a wide array of project types and sizes. Extensive experience collaborating with cultural and institutional clients such as The Picasso Museum Foundation, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Salvation Army, and Syracuse University has equipped both Mark and Martin with an acute understanding of the unique richness of opportunities, challenges, and complexities that large scale work offers. The firm also engages in a variety of smaller scale residential and commercial projects, employing an inquisitive, hands-on and personal approach yielding design solutions that respond to the aspirations and needs of the individual client. The goal for projects of all scales is to achieve a result that is inspired, functional, and relevant. Our design process fosters an environment of creativity and collaboration among the entire project team including owners, consultants, contractors, and product specialists. After clearly defining the inspirations, goals, requirements, and restraints of a given project, a variety of solutions are proposed, critiqued, and refined. This reiterative methodology ensures that the final product will embody a thoughtful design of singular character. Emphasis on the quality of space and light, and diligent attention paid to materiality, functionality, flexibility, transparency, sustainability, and sincerity of the architectural expression, characterize the design work of our firm.
Mark Fiedler co-founded the architectural design firm of Fiedler Marciano Architecture with partner Martin Marciano in January 2006. He has worked as a sole practitioner and at some of New York's most prestigious firms including tenures at Gluckman Mayner Architects and Kohn Pedersen Fox. With over twenty years of professional experience, Mark has designed and managed projects at all levels of scope and complexity including work for the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Austin Museum of Art and Syracuse University. Approaching each project with a lack of preconceptions, Mark brings to bear a unique blend of design rigor, technical knowledge and managerial responsibility in the pursuit of innovative solutions of a singular character.
Prior to co-founding Fiedler Marciano Architecture, Martin spent over ten years working at Gluckman Mayner Architects; five years as an associate with the firm. During his tenure, he managed some of the most complex and demanding projects in the office including a renovation and addition to the Whitney Museum in 1997, and the design and construction of the Museo Picasso Malaga in Spain, completed in 2004. His rigorous approach to research, problem solving and design give him the capability to manage complex projects, and his personal involvement in the cultural life of the city fosters an interest in work that contributes to the public discourse.
