Inside the Business of Design: Mark Ferguson

6:30 p.m.

Inside the Business of Design is series of one-hour live interviews between accomplished design professionals and Keith Granet, author of The Business of Design, Balancing Creativity and Profitability, with the goal of enlightening the audience with the way each of these leaders created their successful design firms.

Mark Ferguson is a partner at Ferguson & Shamamian Architects, LLP, a firm widely recognized for residential design in traditional styles, particularly those with classical origins.  Mark's early work on renovations to houses in Tuxedo Park and Croton-on-Hudson introduced him to traditional architecture. He apprenticed at firms in Pittsburgh, Boston and Princeton before moving to New York City in 1982. The experience led him to a position at Parish-Hadley Associates where he collaborated with interior decorators and artisans in the creation of new residences guided by traditional design principles. While at Parish-Hadley, he joined forces with Oscar Shamamian, and in 1988, they established the firm known today as Ferguson & Shamamian Architects, LLP.

Inside the Business of Design 2012/2013 season guests include Bjarke Ingels, Robert A.M. Stern, Charlotte Moss, and Bunny Williams.
