Marco Marraccini, RA
“The complexity of architecture is a balance of ideas from the client, consultants, specialty fabricators, city officials, contractors and all other parties involved.”
Marco is driven by the collaborative nature of the architectural practice. He sees the complexity of architecture as a balance of ideas from the client, consultants, specialty fabricators, city officials, contractors and all other parties involved. With so many moving parts, Marco enjoys the push and pull that is the architectural journey. Marco is a licensed Architect in the State of California and has previously practiced in Virginia, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania. Prior to joining the team at AA, Marco had worked on a wide range of projects, most significantly with SMBW Architects, where he designed an award winning mausoleum located in Salem, Virginia. Marco joined Abramson Architects in 2010, where he now leads various project teams on ecclesiastical commissions, movie theaters, urban retail centers, and creative work spaces. He appreciates AA’s ability to lead a project, always striving for an excellent product by assembling a team of experts to create the highest level of architecture.

Marco describes his house as a craft store that exploded. As the father of an eight-year-old daughter, he has been making and building doll houses, jewelry and toys with her since she was two. Now she is taking the reins – inventing, sketching, and designing her own independent creations. Along with his graphic designer wife, the family is constantly making things together.
