I completed my diploma in architecture with distinction at The Bartlett, University College London, in July 1993.
In 1990 I jjoined Luscher Architectes, Switzerland to work on design competitions of a telecommunication tower in Bern, a primary school in Lausanne, and residential apartments in Graz, Austria.
Following completion of studies, I engaged on a number of Malaysian and Vietnamese mixed-use development feasibility studies at Ken Yeang’s practice in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and a 4 month masterplaning project with a Malaysian Government transport and infrastructure think-tank.
I joined Foster and Partners in 1995 working on the ground breaking design and construction of Hong Kong’s International Airport Passenger Terminal Building, participating in a wide range of detail design and construction monitoring activities as part of the on-site based design consultant team, the Mott Consortium.  In 1998 I moved to the London office to work on the 43 storey design and construction of the HSBC World Headquarters in Canary Wharf, London.  2002 saw the development of a variety of feasibility and outline scheme designs of commercial office and residential towers in Chicago and New York, as well as the competition winning design of a remodelled Avery Fisher Hall at New York’s Lincoln Center.  The design and construction of the Asprey flagship store on New York’s 5th Avenue presented a unique opportunity within the high end-retail world during 2003.  In 2004 I co-lead on the second Foster + Partners airport, this time leading a core and fitout team on the new 1,000,000 square metre terminals at Beijing Capital Airport, China, delivering a fast track project including the internal planning and detailed fitout  design completed within the year.  The design of luxury apartments and a hotel in Buenos Aires for the Faena Group revolutionised the Foster + Partners portfolio of residential projects in 2005.  In 2007 I took on the challenge to deliver a unique office development for the Neptune Group, an up and coming developer in Mumbai, India.
In 2009 I joined the core project management team supporting the client body of the New Doha International Airport project, Qatar, temporarily broadening from his focus on design towards client liaising, management and construction.]
Between 2012 and 2014 I spent two and half years in Germany, providing design direction on the renovation of the HypoVereinbank headquarters in Munich for Henn Architekten, and collaborating with KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten on Daimler’s new Stuttgart HQ and a 200,000 sqm administration building for the European Commission in Luxemburg.
In 2014 Marco joined Gensler’s London office to bolster the firm’s architectural capabilities and grow the regional market, delivering on a number of transformative projects and innitiatives.
