In announcing the search committee’s decision, Academy Chair Mary Margaret Jones, FASLA, commented: “I am enormously pleased that one of our own, Mark Robbins, will be the next president. He brings his record as an exceptional leader, administrator, educator, architect, and artist to a position that must represent all that is the Academy and its legacy as the highest possible representation of excellence in scholarship and the arts.”

Presently executive director of the International Center of Photography, Robbins was the first curator of architecture at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio; director of design at the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington, D.C.; and dean of the School of Architecture and senior advisor on Architecture and Urban Initiatives at Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York. He has had extensive teaching experience, and his work as an artist is wide-ranging, involving architecture, photography, and site-specific and installation projects. He received his B.A. from Colgate University and a master’s in architecture from Syracuse University.
