Leadership Bios

Parke MacDowell

Co-Chair

Parke channels his background in the building trades to expand the role of the architect – strategically collapsing the architect/builder divide. Parke frequently consults on issues regarding complex geometry, scripting, and methods of full-scale fabrication and material prototyping. At Payette, he leads in-house fabrication initiatives and works across a range of projects within the firm to explore and implement innovative design strategies. With a special interest in the community-building potential of architecture, Parke also leads many of the firm’s pro-bono and outreach initiatives. Parke was previously at NADAAA, where he spearheaded their in-house fabrication and design-research studio.
