If you have walked or driven through Birdrock you have no doubt seen the offices of Architect Mark D. Lyon, Inc.

2012 is the 25th Anniversary of the founding of Architect Mark D. Lyon, Inc. They have been in the same location on the corner of Birdrock Ave. and La Jolla Blvd since April 4th, 1987.

Mark Lyon moved to La Jolla in 1984 after he met his wife Tracy Boynton on a blind date. “She gripped me by the ear, said follow me, and forced me to live in Paradise.”

After working in Downtown San Diego for nine years for several prominent Architects, Mark decided to step out on his own. “ I was scared, deciding to open up my own office was one of the most difficult decisions I have ever made. However, once I made it, I didn’t have time to think about it, I was too busy. Although it was difficult, it was the right decision. Now I look back and am amazed at what I have accomplished and the projects I have been lucky enough to design. My Clients have been so generous and I appreciate every one. Without them, their excitement, their challenges, their warmth and their incite, I would not have the rich diversity of experience and the quiet pride of walking down the street and saying to myself, I did that. I am very lucky and every day I try to remind myself of this fact.
