Marc Fornes is the principal and founder of THEVERYMANY, a New York based design studio and research forum that engages the intersection of architecture and art with computer science, emphasizing building and fabrication as a testing ground for digital design. His geometrically complex and algorithmically-produced prototypes have been exhibited worldwide and are part of the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou, the FRAC Centre, and the Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP). His pop up store for Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama is the very first carbon fiber self-supported shell structure applied to architecture and was awarded an A+ Jury Award as well as the 40th Annual Interior Design Award by the IIDA.
THEVERYMANY also received the AIA New Practices New York award (2012), the Architectural League Prize (2013), and Architectural Record's Design Vanguard Award (2013). Marc Fornes is also an educator, having developed the (n)Certainties graduate studios at Columbia University with Francois Roche, in addition to having taught at the University of Southern California and Die Angewandte in Vienna. He is currently teaching at Princeton University as well as with Patrik Schumacher at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
