Mark Singer leaves a major modern/contemporary ‘thumbprint’ on how Laguna looks today, making it one of the most architecturally interesting communities in the world

All of us at Laguna Friends of Architecture are sadden by Mark’s succumbing to cancer and thank him for his indelible influence on all of us that live in Laguna.  In particular, he helped LFA become 1,400 friends strong by giving us instant credibility when we were just starting, as one our first speakers talking about how he made his houses earth friendly. This house was the first Platinum LEED compliant in the area, the highest level possible.

I could go on and on about Mark’s life, which the local papers have done a great job at, but especially with architecture being the ultimate art form since it shapes every one of us, it’s best to describe him by pictures and videos of his work.

Video of Modern Contemporary homes in Top of the World

When the fires of 1993 destroyed many of the homes in Laguna many homeowners in areas like Top of the World opted to replace them with contemporary modern homes and Mark had a huge part in shaping this ‘rebuilt community’

Here’s a 2 minute video of this area today. One unique home after another.
