First Friday

SOLD OUT — We are currently sold out for this event. To be added to the wait list email rsvp@archleague.org

Join TsAO & McKOWN at its office for drinks, informal conversation, and a behind the scenes look at recent and upcoming projects. This program is part of First Friday, a monthly opportunity for League members to visit the offices of leading design practices to see work on the boards and learn more about the offices’ organization and design processes. These informal social gatherings feature happy hour drinks arranged by the host office.

Founding partners Calvin Tsao and Zack McKown have sought project types and scales across a global span of cultures and locales, “knowing that each markedly diverse experience will serve to inform the next, build knowledge of the tangible matters of design, and provide other 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 our approach,” says Calvin Tsao.

Projects currently under way at the firm include a mixed-use development in the central business district of Dalian, China; the master-planning of a suburban residential community outside Taipei; a holistic wellness-oriented hotel and residential retreat on a lake near Shanghai; and others including wall-covering designs for Wolf Gordon; a high-rise apartment building in Hong Kong; and a house in Pound Ridge, New York.
