About the Mark Outman, FAIA Memorial Lecture
This lecture series was created in memory of Denver architect, Mark Outman, FAIA. Mark, a proud Denver native, knew early on that architecture was his calling.

Mark 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 Caesar 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 is remembered for his thoughtful and intelligent presence and his dry and subtle sense of humor.
