Bio Mark Mistur received his Master's of Science in Building Conservation and his Bachelor's of Architecture from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He also studied at the ETH in Zurich before beginning a career combining both teaching and architectural practice. He was Project Designer and Architect on large and small-scale projects before beginning a practice based in Troy, New York. In teaching and research, he focuses on performance-based design and the integration of building systems and technologies and has helped develop a curriculum based on the inclusion of theoretical, design, and technical skills as necessarily integral in the execution of architectural work.

Between 1998 and 2005, he served as Associate Dean in the School of Architecture where he was instrumental in developing new Masters and PhD programs. He currently leads the Bedford Initiatives, a joint project between engineering and architecture, which seeks to leverage the intelligence and creativity of the two disciplines through a joint studio experience.
