Biography

As part of his undergraduate thesis in Civil Engineering at the University of Utah, Fuller developed a large-scale laminar-flow nozzle that has since been used extensively in WET’s water features. Before founding WET, Fuller worked as an Imagineer for The Walt Disney Company, applying the technology he developed as an undergraduate, and had refined as a graduate student at Stanford, to create Disney’s “Leapfrog” fountain feature at Epcot Center.

Fuller co-founded WET in 1983 and the company now holds more than 50 patents. The company employs about 200 employees of various disciplines — designers, architects, engineers, scientists, cinematographers and others.

He and his creative design firm are known for notable water features that include the Fountains of Bellagio, The Dubai Fountain, the CityCenter in Las Vegas and The Waters of the Olympic Park, featured in Sochi, Russia (designed for the 2014 Winter Olympics), as well as others.

In 2010, Mark received the Themed Entertainment Association’s Thea Lifetime Achievement Award, and was named one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People. Later that year, The New Yorker called him, “the closest thing the world has to a fountain genius”.

Fuller was featured in The New York Times’s "Corner Office" business feature in 2011, spoke at Salt Lake City’s first TEDx on the topic of "Design Disintegration". and was inducted into the Utah Technology Council’s Hall of Fame.

WET Design received the American Institute of Architects’s “Allied Professions Honor Award", a Los Angeles Architecture Award for Landscape Architecture and Images of Universal Design Excellence Project Award. The company has also been named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in 2010 and has been featured in Interior Design, The New York Times, theLos Angeles Times and CBS News Sunday Morning. Mark has two children Madison Fuller and Harrison Fuller.
