Marrikka Trotter, Ph.D

Associate, Communications and Business Development

Marrikka Trotter is Associate in charge of Communication Management and Business Development at Tom Wiscombe Architecture (TWA) in Los Angeles. She is a prominent voice in contemporary design culture, speaking, writing, editing, publishing, and organizing venues for architectural and urban theory and criticism today.

Her award-winning scholarship runs the gamut from the history of intellectual, imaginative, and technical intersections between architecture and geology to big-picture provocations on architecture and ecology today.

Marrikka also brings over twenty years of practice experience to her engagement with architectural ideas, allowing her to interface with emerging opportunities and technical developments within the discipline with ease.

As the head of the Architectural History and Theory Curriculum at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), she balances a commitment to greater equality and justice in the world with the conviction that innovative and breathtaking architecture matters more today than ever.
