Who is Mark Alan Hewitt?

Mark Alan Hewitt is an architect, preservationist and architectural historian who lives and practices in Bernardsville, New Jersey.

Mark Alan Hewitt was born on March 31, 1953, in Berwyn, Illinois. He attended Sammamish High School in Bellevue, Washington, graduating in 1971. Hewitt went to Yale University to study acting and English literature, but a class with Vincent Scully convinced him to change his major to architecture. Graduating from Yale in 1975, he pursued his Master of Architecture degree at the University of Pennsylvania, studying with Allan Greenberg, Robert A.M. Stern, David Van Zanten, and Steven Izenour. After graduating in 1978, he served a two-year apprenticeship with the firm of Venturi, Rauch and Scott Brown. While there, he taught a studio with Steve Izenour called Beach, Boardwalk and Boulevard: The Built Environment of Atlantic City, NJ that later became an exhibition at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York.

Hewitt has taught architecture and historic preservation at Rice University, Columbia University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, and, most recently, as a visiting faculty member at Rutgers University.

Hewitt's research and writing has addressed American architecture and architects from 1880 to 1940, American country houses and domestic architecture, classical architecture and treatises on the orders, the work of Gustav Stickley, and architectural conservation. He was the recipient of an NEH Fellowship at the Winterthur Museum in 1996, and was honored with the Arthur Ross Award in 2009 for his writing on classical architecture.
