Marc Manack, AIA, is an Assistant Professor at the UNC Charlotte School of Architecture, and is founding principal of the architecture and design practice SILO AR+D, which he began in 2009.
His professional design work and creative practice have been recognized nationally and internationally with design awards, publications, and exhibitions. In 2016, Manack was selected as an Emerging Voice by The Architectural League of New York, a competition that recognizes North American individuals and firms with distinct design voices and significant bodies of realized work.
Manack’s research focuses on the relationship between design processes, project delivery, and organizations of practice. He is interested in how that relationship is affected by emerging cultural and technological phenomena that lead not only to advanced possibilities for expression in architecture, but to a new understanding of what constitutes the product of architectural practice. He has taught previously at the University of Arkansas Fay Jones School of Architecture, Kent State University College of Architecture and Environmental Design, and at Ohio State University's Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture, from where is he is also a graduate.
