Quinn & Company

The appointment of Mark Strauss, principal of Fox & Fowle Architects, to the Board of Directors of the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, was announced at the group's 134th annual meeting on June 27th, 2001.

Strauss brings over 25 years of experience in urban design and architecture to AIA New York Chapter's Board of Directors. In his new role, Strauss will act as the chapter's liaison to public entities and government agencies, which are crucial to the practice of architecture in the city.

Strauss is an architect and planner who joined Fox and Fowle after the firm's 2000 merger with Jambhekar Strauss, a firm he co-founded in 1993. Among his most noteworthy projects are the Downtown Plan for New Rochelle, the Redevelopment Plan for the Hunts Point Food Distribution Center, the Revitalization Plan for Glen Cove Creek, the Master Plan for Buffalo?s Inner Harbor, the Queensborough Community College Master Plan, and a Master Plan for Jamaica Center in response to the new AirTrain connection to JFK Airport.

Strauss' current projects include the Letchworth Village Redevelopment Plan for the Town of Haverstraw, a Redevelopment Plan for the Hackensack Meadowlands Landfill with EDAW, the Huntington Station Area Development Plan, the Sustainable Design Guidelines for New Jersey Transit, and he is part of the design/planning review team with Bovis Lendlease and Arup for Hudson River Park. He also recently received a joint NYC AIA/Boston Society of Architects Urban Design Award for the Master Plan for the Midtown East Project in Long Island City.

Outside of the studio, Strauss has been an instructor at Pratt Institute and has lectured at New York University, City College of New York, Columbia University and the University of Pennsylvania. Strauss holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cornell University and a Master of Urban Planning degree from the City College of New York.

"Mark's strong record of success and innovation will be an asset to the New York AIA?s Board of Directors," said Bruce Fowle, senior principal of Fox & Fowle. "He is one of the driving forces at Fox & Fowle and a natural born networker who is bound to improve the Chapter's relations with public agencies."
