With almost 20 years of experience, Mark Ramirez was responsible for the design and project management of numerous multi-million dollar projects including some of the city’s most notable development projects.

Mark earned his Bachelor of Architecture and Master of Architecture from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, which included two years of graduate school at the Virginia Tech Center for European Studies and Architecture located in Ticino region of Switzerland.

He joined Hickok Cole in 1998 and spent 8 years with the firm, where he managed large-scale mixed-use projects, Class A commercial office buildings, parking structures and medical office buildings. In 2006 he co-founded the Architecture firm Square 134, which specializes in mixed-use, office, multi-family and single-family projects.

During this time, Mark also taught at the University Maryland as a Guest Lecturer, where he furthered his passion for digital media, digital fabrication, and all things associated with the future of the design and construction industry.

Mark returned to Hickok Cole Architects in July of 2011 as Director of Corporate Office and Associate Principal where he continues to focus on futurist ideas and the changing nature of the office and work environment.

Most recently and as Director of the Corporate Office, his group was responsible for the winning entry in the National NAIOP Office of the Future Design competition.

Mark is a devoted husband and father of two intelligent, but generally adventurous, children. It is easy to see that the apple does not fall far from the tree.
