Mark Cottle

Mark Cottle studied English literature and music composition at Clemson University (1979), architecture and painting at Rice University (1988), and theory and criticism at Harvard University (1989).

He has received a number of design awards, including the Steedman Fellowship in Architecture and the Dinkeloo Fellowship to the American Academy in Rome.

His artwork may be found in the permanent collections of Rice University and the Atlanta High Museum of Art, among others.

A continuing art project, "The Cost of Money", is a meditation on the steep human price capital exacts, particularly from the most vulnerable populations, and at enormous expense to the environment.  Beginning with a residency and exhibition of installations at the Neutra VDL House in Silver Lake, Los Angeles in 2019, "The Cost of Money" seeks to engage in conversation with a series of iconic works of modern architecture.  The next iteration is scheduled for Summer 2023 in the Mies Pavilion in Barcelona.

He teaches design studios, both graduate and undergraduate, together with two theory seminars: "The Left Hand of Darkness : Shadow Structures" and "White : The Other Color".
