The MassArt Department of Architecture invites you to  the first installment of the Fall 2022 Tuesday Talks speaker series with Parke MacDowell: Architecture, Making, and the Power of Shared Agency.


Parke's lecture will be held  at 6pm EST on Tuesday, September 27 in MassArt's Huntington Studio and via Zoom.


As an architect, Parke MacDowell leverages his background in construction to inform design and project management. Committed to embedding fabrication within architectural practice, Parke uses models, prototypes, and full-scale mock-ups to help all parties understand the problem and have a voice in its resolution. With a special interest in the community-building potential of architecture, Parke leads numerous pro-bono initiatives positioning design as a powerful tool for outreach, community engagement and building for the future.

Parke received his BA from Dartmouth College and M.Arch from the University of Michigan. His professional experience includes NADAAA, where he spearheaded fabrication-research and design-build projects. In his current employment, Parke established Payette’s fabrication group, which elevates design process and communication across the breadth of the firm’s work. His design-forward projects have recently garnered two AIA 2021 Regional and Urban Design Awards and a 2021 American Architecture Award, among other honors. Parke is the 2021 BSA Earl R. Flansburgh Young Architects Award recipient and is an Adjunct Professor of Practice at Virginia Tech. Parke received the 2022 AIA Young Architect Award for his contributions to the profession.
