Mark Haizlip is a native of the Pacific NW and has long been interested in the built environment, the natural environment, and the relationship between the two. These early interests took him to the University of Virginia where he received his undergraduate degree in Architecture. Following graduation he worked as a field engineer in Washington DC and then moved back to Seattle to work on his Masters degree in architecture at the University of Washington. This is where he met Greg Squires and ultimately joined up with him to collaborate on their thesis project; a small design/build project for a non-profit organization. Shortly before graduating he joined Pb Elemental, working there for the next five years with the primary role of establishing the single family residence division. Following his departure he teamed up with Greg Squires to form alloy design group. They have been collaborating ever since with the intention of producing work that positively influences our environment, both natural and built. When he doesn't have his mind on architecture, he enjoys spending time with his family, coaching basketball, and exploring the great outdoors.
