Marlon Blackwell, FAIA, is a practicing architect in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and serves as Distinguished Professor and Department Head in the Fay Jones School of Architecture at the University of Arkansas.

Blackwell received the 2012 Architecture Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
