Mark Pomarico

Design Principal
Mark is a Design Principal and joined Booth Hansen in 2018. Prior to this, he lived in Boston for 8 years and worked for several firms working on a range of institutional, commercial, and residential projects. During this time, Mark also taught architecture studios for 4 years at the Boston Architectural College. Mark currently leads our office’s efforts as a host firm for the Virginia Tech Chicago Studio. His love for architecture lies in a driven, inquisitive and collaborative design process that draws from a range of disciplines to innovatively approach each client’s project.

Mark recently participated as a member of the ULI Chicago Accessory Dwelling Unit task force, which worked with city officials, community representatives, and partner organizations to develop a framework for an equitable ADU policy in Chicago. He also had the opportunity to travel to Tokyo in 2012 and collaborate with local Architect Toyo Ito on the “Home for All” initiative, which focused on designing gathering structures and master plans to envision a future for the displaced residents of the devastating tsunamis in the Tohoku region. These projects highlight the ability for architects to be leaders in their local communities and provide meaningful places to lift the human spirit and facilitate equitable dwelling & collective gathering.

Mark earned his Master of Architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design and his Bachelor of Design from University of Florida. Mark is a registered Architect in the State of Illinois and Massachusetts.
