For over a decade, Mar Ricketts, principal and founder of GuildWorks, has been a noteworthy leader in the tensile fabric structure industry. Applying design from nature’s principles, Mar takes pride in creating the elegant, tension fabric structures that bring his client’s amazing visions to life as well as building a business that cares for people and the planet. With a background in architecture, morphology and geometry, tension structures, and tensile structure engineering, Mar officially launched his vision for a creative, collaborative business in 1994. Exceptionally knowledgeable about every aspect of the business and the unique tensile fabric structure industry, he is committed to cultivating a collaborative and positive work environment for GuildWorks’ clients and its employees.

GuildWorks intends to be at the forefront of these advancements and position itself as an innovative leader. When he isn’t working, Mar enjoys time with his wife and young daughter playing on the beach, making art, dancing, or just enjoying a good meal together.
