Mark Ferguson

Mark Ferguson is a founding partner of Ferguson & Shamamian Architects and is the Dean of the School of Architecture and Planning at Catholic University. After receiving his Bachelor of Architecture from Carnegie-Mellon University and Master of Architecture from Princeton University, he apprenticed at firms in Pittsburgh, Boston and Princeton before moving to New York with his wife, architect Natalie Jacobs. Mark’s early work on renovations to houses in Tuxedo Park and Croton-on-Hudson introduced him to traditional architecture during a time when modernism was pervasive. His experience with classical forms led him to the legendary interior decoration firm Parish-Hadley, where he collaborated with interior decorators and artisans in the creation of new residences guided by traditional design principles. It was at Parish-Hadley that Mark and Oscar first worked together and in 1988, they joined forces to establish the firm known today as Ferguson & Shamamian Architects.
