BIO:

Peter Marino is an internationally acclaimed architecture, planning and designer.

In fact, he opened his firm after graduating with an architecture degree from Cornell University. Also, he had works at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and George Nelson.

Fashion’s most celebrated architect has revamped dozens of luxury fashion stores and is renowned for his inventive use of light, space and contemporary artwork. 

Marino’s design contributions in commercial, cultural, residential areas and retail architecture, have helped redefine modern luxury worldwide. In fact, he is widely known for his residential and retail designs for the most iconic names in the fashion and art worlds.

Moreover, Peter Marino revolutionized the concept of high-end boutiques worldwide (Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Ermenegildo Zegna, to name a few). Further, he created some of the most exquisite spaces for the rich & famous ( fromAgnelli to Warhol and everyone in between). In short, he is, by all means, a true study in contrast.

Additionally, he is a huge motorcycle fan, who dresses accordingly. Indeed, Marino loves his Harley Davidsons as well as his Meissen porcelains and Renaissance bronzes.

There is no question that Marino’s signature look has made him one of a handful of living architects actually recognized by the media.

I like more the fact that I like to think out-of-the-box. Thinking out-of-the-box goes along with dressing out-of-the-box and living out-of-the-box. If you want to come up with a really original design idea and you want to capture a whole new design direction, perhaps the best way to arrive at that is not by acting and thinking and doing like everybody else. That’s all.
