12/29/09
Habits, Patterns, Algorithms presents a diverse selection of projects by Stephan Jaklitsch, the New York-based architect behind all Marc Jacobs retail locations worldwide. Encompassing realized commissions as well as proposals, this volume presents a range of projects, from small-scale retail constructions to freestanding residential works that engage the surrounding landscape. Illustrated with 425 color images and 140 black-and-white images, this history of Jaklitsch's work covers every stage of his projects--from sketch to model to completed structure. It provides a glimpse into the rarely discussed intricacies of the design process, from land site and building code limitations to client-imposed conditions. Exceptional photography and text make this book a valuable resource for the architectural audience, as well as a visually stunning collectible work.

As principal of the firm bearing his name since its inception in 1998, Stephan Jaklitsch has built a small design studio focused on residential and commercial projects in New York City into a 17-member architectural firm with a diverse, international portfolio.
