HCMA Ar­chi­tec­ture + De­sign's Mark Busse

1. A mo­tor­cy­cle afi­cionado, Busse has rid­den since his teens, on “big honk­ing cruis­ers as well as crotch-rocket sporty ma­chines.” His most re­cent solo twowheel ad­ven­ture on his cur­rent chop­per, a Suzuki SV650, was to a lead­er­ship re­treat in Mon­tana.

2. He's been asked to con­sider going into mu­nic­i­pal pol­i­tics twice, by dif­fer­ent par­ties. “The an­swer no is so easy for me be­cause I'm ac­tu­ally hav­ing an im­pact now,” he says. “Be­sides, I'm just not wired for all that pol­icy stuff.”

3. When trav­el­ling, Busse al­ways takes cook­ing classes or finds peo­ple to teach him lo­cal dishes like pasteis de Nata (cus­tard tarts) in Por­tu­gal, bánh xèo (savoury fried pan­cake) in Viet­nam and green curry in Thai­land. “It's a great trick, and how you get the real deal about the cul­ture.”
