7th Annual Distinguished Designer Lecture: Tsao & McKown
Start Date: 2/5/2015Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 2/5/2015End Time: 8:30 PM


Join GW Interior Architecture & Design for their 7th Annual Distinguished Designer Lecture featuring Calvin Tsao and Zack McKown of Tsao & McKown Architects!

From their first commission in 1985, a high-rise residential building in Shanghai, partners Calvin Tsao and Zack McKown have challenged themselves and their associates with the widest possible range of project types and scales, across a global span of cultures and locales, knowing that each diverse experience informs the next and provides unique insights. Whether the project is a table, a room, a high-rise, or an urban plan, attention to the points of intimate, tactile engagement between the individual and the larger built environment is critical to their approach. With the additional realization that there are no natural discontinuities between inside and out, the firm delights in exterior forms emerging from within, and interior spaces forming externally.

The firm's current work includes a wellness retreat and residential community in Suzhou, China, a retirement compound for monks in Bhutan, and a hotel in Pittsburgh. In addition, Tsao and McKown continue to undertake furniture and product design alongside private residences and multiple-family dwellings, as they find that the exploration of domesticity at a range of scales best reveals the finer nuances of human needs and desires.
