The New York-based architect behind all Marc Jacobs retail locations worldwide

Stephan Jaklitsch’s Habits, Patterns, Algorithms presents a diverse selection of the studio’s most noteworthy projects and built work. Organized in a rough chronological sequence, the projects range in scale from small interior-oriented retail constructions and free-standing residential work, which engages the surrounding landscape, to larger urban transformations both built and speculative. The primary focus is the process of the design and construction of each work and the strict limitations presented by program, site, code or client conditions. Each project is presented with detailed drawings, sketches, models and photographs.

"Jaklitsch's modernism is both international and has style, having been grafted to a new global force of commerce and fashion. He has complimented his hard-edged but sumptuous global urban projects with more rustic vernacular projects - equally far flung - continuing the classical tradition of distinct architectural languages for the city and the landscape." --Terence Riley, Director, Miami Art Museum

Calvin Tsao has emerged as one of the most thoughtful and original voices in contemporary design since co-founding Tsao & McKown Architects with partner Zack McKown in 1985. Drawing his inspiration from a dazzling spectrum of cultures and art forms spanning time and place, Mr. Tsao deftly interweaves diverse elements to forge a style that eludes categorization. Eschewing the high-profile habit of imposing an aesthetic brand on his projects, he instead advocates an approach that looks beyond the building to consider the behavior it inspires. Mr. Tsao currently serves as president of the Architectural League of New York and is a member of the Visiting Committee to Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. A fellow of the American Institute of Architects, he has taught at Harvard and the Parsons School of Design.
