His current research examines transnational design relations between Australia and Scandinavia, and the role of the Australian retail sector in international design diplomacy. Mark has an extensive track record of outputs based on his research and archival interpretation that has been recognised through a number of grants and awards from local and international organisations that include Estrid Ericson’s Foundation Sweden, The Swedish Institute, Hallenbladska Fund Sweden, King Gustaf VI Adolfs fund for Swedish Culture, Swedish Royal Patriotic Society Grants Fund, Längmanska Fund Sweden, UNSW Art & Design Faculty Publication and Research Grants and the University of New South Wales College of Fine Arts Award for excellence in Post-Graduate Research.

Mark has extensive curriculum and teaching experience across the major design schools in Sydney in the areas of Design, Interior Design, Architecture, Design History and Theory, and Design Practice, at undergraduate and postgraduate level. 

As a chartered architect, Mark has an extensive industry background as a design practitioner. He is principal of the Sydney based design studio, Jones Architecture, founded in 1995 that specialises in small to medium scale projects, including private houses, public buildings, multi-residential, retail, and interiors. Prior to establishing Jones Architecture, Mark held senior positions in commercial architectural practices in the UK and Australia. To date, he has completed over AUD $31.0m of built projects. Since his first public commission by Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust Sydney for the design of The Palm Grove Centre shop and visitor centre, completed in 2000, Mark has completed a further 23 built projects. His practice continues to work with both public and private clients on a number of small, medium and large scale projects in Sydney and his projects have been published internationally.
