Marco Piscitelli is an architect and designer living and working in Brooklyn, New York. His design experience at a number of influential design firms in New York ranges from urban planning to furniture design. Having experienced first-hand the loss of agency for the architect and his diminishing role within cultural production, Piscitelli asks how a queer, research-based practice may operate as an alternative to market-based, client-driven methods of creating.
Eschewing traditional notions of Craft in favor of contemporary digital and mechanical fabrication practices of the mass-produced, his work probes the rituals, imagery, and obsessions associated with domestic spaces. Though Piscitelli is an architect by training and utilizes many of the skills and practices of the discipline, his work straddles art, design, and urbanism.
He holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Syracuse University and is currently pursuing studies in Critical, Curatorial, and Conceptual Practices at Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.
