Tom started Marbletecture in 2001. Since then he has completed dozens of projects ranging from furniture design to the transformation of neighborhoods. His practice has extended to public art, assisting the artist Pae White with a series of large-scale commissions. He has also been committed to research, probing the often antagonistic relationship of people to place, first through "Twelve Minutes with Frank & Dolores" a short film he presented at the 1989 Monterey Design Conference, then in articles for trade journals, and later in book form with After the city this (is how we live) published by the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design in 2008. Tom is currently working on The Expediter, an architectural film noir exploring the role of real estate development in the formation of contemporary Los Angeles.
