Montana State University, School of Architecture, in conjunction with the Montana AIA Fall Conference, is proud to present Leo Marmol, who will present his lecture “Why We Build” on Thursday at 4:00 p.m., in the Student Union Building, Ballrooms B and C.
Since the 1950’s, support for design-build delivery has grown significantly within the design and construction community. In fact, the AIA, whose code of ethics once discouraged members from the practice, has now deemed the architect as the most qualified to lead design-build. In 1989, Leo Marmol and Ron Radziner formed Marmol Radziner for the purpose of creating exceptional design. Recognizing the inextricable tie between design and construction, the firm began building its own designs to achieve the highest level of quality. Today, Marmol Radziner offers architectural, interior, and landscape design; construction services; and cabinet and metal fabrication services. Managing Principal, Leo Marmol, FAIA, offers an insider’s perspective on how design-build, and the growing acceptance of this practice, has both shaped the firm and contributed to its success. Mr. Marmol has extensive experience running a variety of residential projects, from historic restorations to modern prefabricated homes, as well as public and community-based urban projects.
Active in his profession, Leo lectures widely on the topics of architecture, sustainability, and restoration, and participates in conferences, symposia, and panel discussions. He has also organized numerous architectural tours in Southern California to highlight the region’s wealth of mid-century Modernist landmarks, Leo serves on the board of trustees of the Palm Springs Art Museum. He received his Bachelor of Architecture, with a Minor in Philosophy from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California.
