Shoemaker leads placemaking design for large-scale commercial, healthcare, and transportation projects, including the Mayo Building, Reagan National Airport, and the Salesforce Transit Center in San Francisco — which will be the first new high-speed rail station in the United States. Mark has taught and lectured at Pratt Institute, MIT, the University of Pennsylvania, and Ball State University. He received a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies from the Georgia Institute of Technology, which included a year of study at École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania.
