Mark Wilde retires from Architectus

14 December 2018

After over 40 years in architecture, most of it spent as director of Architectus, Mark Wilde will retire at the end of 2018. 

Mark joined the practice in 1986 and has played a significant role in the evolution of Architectus, particularly in leading the design of projects in the industrial, logistics, transport and law court sectors.

Managing Director Ray Brown said, “Mark is known for his clear analytical thinking, his ability to tackle complex briefs and lead cohesive, focused teams. Through his work on the Queen Elizabeth II Courts of Law in Brisbane, Mark championed the use of natural light in court rooms of the highest jurisdiction and changed the court room paradigm in Australia forever. His latest project, the Shepparton Law Courts, builds on this human-centric design approach.

As a Board member, Mark contributed to the success of Architectus through strategy development with a focus on technology and systems innovation. Mark’s approach has always been authentic and collaborative, he has developed the talent within our practice and has mentored many of our current and future leaders. We wish Mark all the very best in his retirement and thank him for his dedication and leadership.” 

Commenting on his retirement, Mark Wilde, said, “I would like to thank my colleagues, collaborators and clients for all the opportunities and challenges I have enjoyed over 36 years with the company. I commenced as a contractor and ended as a director, I could not have wished for more in my career. I leave Architectus confident in the knowledge that the practice is in great hands and sincerely wish Architectus all the very best for future success.”

We wish Mark well as he takes on new challenges. He will always be part of the Architectus family.
