Three Aggie partners at Marmon Mok
help win firm’s ‘Texas Treasure’ award


San Antonio’s Marmon Mok Architecture, which has designed some of the Alamo City’s most notable structures, received the Texas Treasure Business Award, presented Jan. 4 on behalf of the state of Texas by State Senator Leticia Van de Putte, D-San Antonio.

Three of the firm’s principals — Gregory J. Houston, Mary Mitchell-Bartlett and William R. Reeves — are former students from Texas A&M’s College of Architecture.

Houston, the firm’s recreation/sports studio leader, earned a Bachelor of Environmental Design degree in 1979 and a Master of Architecture degree in 1981; Mitchell-Bartlett, Marmon Mok’s interior architecture studio leader, earned a Bachelor of Environmental Design degree in 1986; and Reeves, the firm’s education studio leader, earned a Master of Architecture degree in 1979.

To be eligible for the Texas Treasure Business Award, a company must be more than 50 years old, nominated by its state representative or senator and certified by the Texas Historical Commission as doing the same type of business in the same county where it was founded and have a continuous record of employee or corporate community service.

Architects at Marmon Mok designed the Alamodome, the Texas A&M University-San Antonio campus, the Cancer Therapy and Research Center and Northwest Vista College.

Among the firm’s awards in 2010 was a designation as one of the top 25 “green” design firms from Texas Construction Magazine, a design citation from the San Antonio chapter of the American Institute of Architects for its design of the Bexar County Juvenile Probation Office Building and the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association’s Outstanding Sports Facility Award for its design of the Student Recreation Center at Texas State University.
