Inaugural Mark Outman, FAIA Memorial Lecture

October 6, 2021


We are honored to support the inaugural lecture in the Mark Outman, FAIA Memorial Lecture Series, presented by the University of Colorado Denver, College of Architecture and Planning. This inaugural lecture, Designing Relationships, will be delivered by Jon Pickard, founder of Pickard Chilton, an esteemed mentor and colleague of Mark Outman and will be hosted by The Denver Art Museum. 

Mark A. Outman, a proud Denver native, knew early on that Architecture was his calling. He completed his first internship with architect Charles "Chuck" Sink, who left a legacy of modernism in Denver. After completing a Bachelor of Architecture at Tulane University in 1980, he worked for Peter Dominick and Associates, HOK Architects, and Anderson Mason Dale Architects. Mark’s intellectual energy brought out the best in those that worked around him. Mark later earned a Master of Architecture in 1986 from Yale University in New Haven, CT, and joined Cesar Pelli and Associates, where he collaborated on many high-profile projects. After joining Fentress Architects in 1995, Mark lent his design sense and creativity to numerous remarkable civic projects including airport terminals, sport stadiums, city halls, courthouses, and museums – both nationally and internationally.

Mark received hundreds of awards, honors, and recognitions throughout his highly successful career. In 2017, Mark was recognized by the American Institute of Architects' College of Fellows for his contributions to the field of architecture. Mark will be remembered as a thoughtful and intelligent presence with a dry and subtle sense of humor.

The lecture will be held on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, 6:00pm at the Denver Art Museum's Sharp Auditorium. Please follow the link below to register for this event:
