NOCA MODERN Architect Detail

Body of Work:
St. Francis Square

Claude Stoller attended Black Mountain College in the early 1940s before leaving the school in 1942 to serve in the U.S. Army. Upon his return, Stoller was accepted into the Harvard Graduate School of Design, despite his incomplete undergraduate education, and graduated in 1949. In 1956 Stoller established an architecture firm in San Francisco with the brother of a fellow student at Black Mountain College, Robert M. Marquis. Marquis & Stoller thrived in the industry, concentrating on low-cost housing projects, university and college buildings, and private residences. The partnership dissolved in 1974 when both partners established their own practice. Marquis & Stoller is perhaps best known for projects such as the San Francisco Zoo Primate Discovery Center, Sacramento Department of Justice Division Headquarters, and Robert F. Kennedy Library at California Polytechnic University.
