The Architecture of Mark P. Finlay

by Mark P. Finlay

The moment from which I derive the greatest professional satisfaction is when someone walks into a house for the first time and says, "you nailed it!" That's the architecture of joy."

Mark P. Finlay

Once a young explorer content among the trees and nature of his boyhood home in Northbrook Illinois, Mark Finlay's passion for beauty and design drove him from the Chicago suburb to eventually work with the renowned architectural firm of Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo. His wealth of experience grew over time, as a part of the team that completed some of the iconic works of Eero Saarinen. Branching out, Finlay started his own firm in 1984. After 35 masterful years, completing works of artful design around the country, Mark P. Finlay Architects offers us Country Houses: The Architecture of Mark P. Finlay.  (April 1, 2018; ISBN: 9781864707298; IMAGES PUBLISHING).

This beautiful monograph invites readers into Finlay's artistic world, unveiling how his keen insights lead to creation of the most personal and memorable of spaces: a home. Alongside stunning photography, this distinctive and thoughtful volume delivers 12 of Finlay's finest works, all which have pushed creative boundaries.


Press Reviews

Leafing through this selection from Southport architect Mark Finlay’s three-plus decades of work, you might get the feeling that he’s an architectural chameleon. And, it turns out, that’s a perfectly fitting metaphor.

Finlay’s 30-year career is explored in the architect’s first tome. He discusses how he is able to design intimacy into his homes, despite their size and grandeur, in locations ranging from Virginia and South Carolina to the Rocky Mountains. His respect for tradition and knowledge of classical American architecture is evident no matter where the foundation is laid. (Images Publishing, May 2018)
