Integrus Architecture’s Wenatchee Valley College Music & Arts Center was one of two projects to receive the AIA Washington Council’s 2013 Civic Design Award – Honor, the highest accolade for public works in Washington State. A year later, we asked the Principal-in-Charge of Design, Mark Dailey, AIA to reflect on aspects of the project that stood out.
As principal-in-charge of design for Integrus, Mr. Mark Dailey has been responsible for the design of many of the firm’s most successful projects. His talent, design sensitivity, and desire to continue the firm’s history of moderne-rooted architecture has translated into building designs that have won dozens of National, Regional, Local, and Trade awards. Focusing mostly on Public Works architecture, including higher education and civic/government buildings such as libraries and U.S. Embassies, Mark’s belief in and affinity for the principles of moderne architecture remain as core values today at Integrus. This admiration for moderne design is a natural seque into Mark’s belief in simple and functional buildings void of unnecessary ornament that are unique to a certain place and time.
Mark holds a Bachelor and Master of Architecture from Montana State University and is licensed in Idaho, Indiana, Montana, North Carolina, and Washington. He is an active member on the Montana State University Architectural Advisory Council and the American Institute of Architects. Mark’s professional background and expertise has provided him with opportunities to critique and contribute to University architectural programs, AIA programs, serve as juror for awards programs, and speak at educational and industry conferences.
