With a degree in architecture from The City College of NY, he is sought out by top designers as a construction partner. He has been referred to as a builder with the vision of an architect. Completed projects include the addition to the Morgan Library and Museum, Pratt Institute School of Architecture, Central Synagogue Restoration, Harvard Club of New York City, the South Court Addition to New York Public Library’s Main Branch, the new Academic Building for Cooper Union and the FDR Four Freedoms Park Memorial on Roosevelt Island. Current projects include new buildings for Columbia Medical Center, Collegiate School, Princeton University, CUNY - New York City College of Technology New Academic Building and The Shed at Hudson Yards. In 1996, Frank formed the real estate development firm Sciame Development.
Frank’s accomplishments, contributions and his dedication to preserving New York City's treasures have been recognized with numerous honors. In 2004, CCNY awarded him an Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts degree. Among his commitments, he is a current Executive Committee Board Member and Past-Chairman of both the New York Landmarks Conservancy and the New York Building Congress.

In 2006, Mr. Sciame was appointed by Governor Pataki and Mayor Bloomberg to lead the effort to ensure a buildable World Trade Center Memorial. He was asked to align the budget and the design by working with the families of the victims and many other stakeholders to define a viable project for New York and the Nation. His design recommendations (included as part of National Geographic’s Official Book of the National September 11 Memorial) were implemented. Mr. Sciame and his advisors took great pride when the National September 11
Memorial & Museum, was built and opened successfully under the recommended plan. Frank and his wife of 43 years, Barbara, are the proud parents of four children: Andrew, Alexandra, FJ and Fionna, five grandsons and two granddaughters.

With an impressive portfolio that ranges from a 500SF design lab for Macy’s to a 350,000SF headquarters for A+E Networks, Mark brings a vibrant depth of perspective to his role as Principal. For decades, he has been a driving force for creativity, social, and environmental responsibility in design, and it is his belief that it is the responsibility of design to respond to, and elevate, the human experience.

He is an adept problem-solver with a great sense of creativity and curiosity in people, process, and materiality. It is this boundless curiosity that pushes him to dig ever deeper in understanding how organizations, and the people in them, work.
