Marques King



Marques King is a Licensed Architect, practicing Urban Designer, and small scale developer operating in Detroit, Michigan. His desire to pursue a career in the built environment was fueled by enjoyable experiences growing up in various Detroit neighborhoods during the late 80’s & early 90’s. This would contrast with future degradation the city and its neighborhoods would experience over the next 2-3 decades and, ultimately establish Marques’ need to take an active part in rebuilding Detroit’s neighborhoods.  

Marques holds B.S. in Architecture and in Construction Management from Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, Michigan. He also has a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland. Throughout his career, Marques has developed a variety of projects across a variety of scales including mixed-use residential-commercial buildings, missing middle housing structures, and comprehensive masterplans for entire districts. He has also worked on various international projects as well.  

Currently, Marques practices architecture, urban design, and development through his firm Fabric[K] Design and East Jefferson Development Corporation which both endeavor to hold neighborhoods together with contextual, sustainable, and people-centric design. The projects are at the small to mid-size scale with a focus on housing hybrids and ‘Missing Middle’ types. In addition to private practice, Marques serves as a faculty member of the Incremental Development Alliance and is an adjunct faculty member at the University of Maryland School of Architecture, Preservation, and Planning.
