Mark Loughnan has more than 20 years of design experience on internationally significant architecture projects across Australia, Europe, North America, and China particularly those with a public or civic focus.
At HASSELL – a global, design-focused practice based in Melbourne, Australia – Mark is a Board Director and joint Head of Design for Architecture, contributing his design vision to the firm’s major projects across all markets. He combines an international, big-picture perspective with an innate ability to understand and articulate layers of local meaning. That has helped HASSELL create places that are distinctly right for their city – but also have universal appeal.
Marks project portfolio includes the New Museum for Western Australia (HASSELL + OMA) and the East Perth Power Station Gallery concept, both in Perth; the Flinders Street Station international design competition win in Melbourne (HASSELL + Herzog & de Meuron); The Sir Zelman Cohen Awarded University of Queensland’s Advanced Engineering Building for Public Architecture (RKA + HASSELL JV); Medibank tower Melbourne, and the concept of new Sydney International Convention Centre.
Before joining HASSELL in Melbourne, Mark worked as an Associate with Herzog & de Meuron in their Basel, Switzerland headquarters as well as in the H&deM San Francisco studio he managed. Key projects included the de Young Museum in San Francisco; 1111 Lincoln Road, Miami; 40 Bond Apartment Building, and the concept for 56 Leonard Street, both in New York City.
