Marshall Brown is deeply and personally invested in the craft of architectural images. He uses collage techniques to create visions of architecture and urban worlds yet to come. These tableaus sometimes function as part of larger projects, but also stand as creative works in their own right. Brown is an architect, principal of Marshall Brown Projects, and an Associate Professor at the IIT College of Architecture. His achievements include selection to the U.S. Pavilion for the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, selection as a finalist in the 2012 Navy Pier Centennial Vision competition, and serving as the first Saarinen Architecture Fellow at the Cranbrook Academy of Art.
Marshall Brown’s work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, the Arts Club of Chicago, and Western Exhibitions in Chicago. He has served on the editorial board of the Journal of Architectural Education and has lectured at Harvard University, Chicago Humanities Festival, University of Michigan, University of Toronto, Northwestern University, the Graham Foundation, and the Arts Club of Chicago. His projects and essays have appeared in several books and journals, including Metropolis, Crain’s, Architectural Record, The New York Daily News, Art Papers, The Believer, Journal of Architectural Education, and New Directions in Sustainable Design.
