Mark Bryan

Director - Innovation + Research, Senior Interior Designer


"Good design does not occur by itself, it is given life through investigation, discovery, and taking giant steps."

Award-winning Interior Designer, Mark Bryan, is known for his most marked characteristic of an unbridled desire for continued learning and exploration. Mark leads M+A’s Innovation and Research team, finding evidence-based design solutions that will enhance the quality of spaces and enrich the lives of those who interact within.

Mark’s curiosity leads him to explore unconventional approaches, bringing him to new solutions for today’s challenges that benefit our projects, practice, and community. His hope is to energize clients and colleagues alike, to push past limits and break boundaries by communicating a vision through storytelling.
