Samuel Marx

Samuel Marx

Samuel A. Marx was born Natchez, Mississippi, in 1885. He graduated from MIT’s Department of Architecture in 1907, with his thesis Design for a Synagogue. He then went studying to Europe for eight months. Before opening his own practice, he worked for Killham & Hopkins in Boston, and for Shepley, Rutan & Coolidge in Chicago. While he originally designed interior of hotels and department stores, Marx became a mostly residential architect, designing stripped-down buildings reminiscent of Mies van der Rohe’s works, while he became respected for his aesthetic and functional integrated furnitures and decorative elements.
