Marcia and Michael met many years ago but reconnected through a collaborative project only recently. Marcia is the project architect for the firm. Her responsibilities include everything that has to do with the design, from meeting with clients, to interpreting their wants and needs into built form, and producing the drawings needed for construction. Marcia’s favorite project type is residential because she finds that clients are most passionate about the space they call home. Marcia enjoys working with the Michael Menn Ltd. team very much. In her spare time, Marcia wrote a book about her father, a Holocuast survivor, titled Resilience––from Shavl to Southfield via Dachau, and she’s thrilled to be able to speak at schools and religious institutions, taking over where her father is leaving off.
