SCI-Arc alum Guy Martin Wenzel (M.Arch '06) is featured in the online edition of Metropolis. Prior to graduation, he started Guy Martin Design, a design and fabrication shop founded on pursuing craft in the digital age. He has realized numerous projects with Philippe Starck. He was also chosen to lend his unique expertise to Space X, America's first private-sector space transport company founded by PayPal co-founder Elon Musk.
"Guy Martin Design is quite possibly the most famous firm you have never heard of. He's the guy who figures out how to make some of Philippe Starck's more complicated creations, translating the digital into the physical. He works behind the scenes in a non-descript warehouse with no windows. Thankfully, he has a huge ventilation system. He spends most of his time here with Marie, his robot accomplice. He's moved up in the world. He used to operate out of a shipping container (also without windows) in the parking lot of SCI-Arc—until he graduated and was asked to leave and take his container with him."

Martin also has the distinction of being the only private-sector design-fabricator utilizing the largest, most advanced robot available for architectural as well as other design applications.
