Marc Tsurumaki is principal and founding partner of LTL Architects, a New York-based design intensive architecture firm founded in 1997.  LTL Architects engages a diverse range of work, turning the constraints of each project into the design trajectory by exploring opportunistic overlaps between space, program, form, budget, and materials. In 2019, the firm was selected as the AIA New York State Firm of the Year, and its three partners were inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame.  LTL’s work has been recognized extensively including the National Design Award and inclusion in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco MoMA and the Carnegie Museum of Art. Marc Tsurumaki is a licensed architect and received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Virginia and a Master of Architecture from Princeton University.  Marc is an Adjunct Associate Professor of Architecture at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation and has taught at multiple institutions, most recently as the Davenport Visiting Professor at Yale University.  Marc is the author with Paul and David Lewis of five books including the recently published Manual of Biogenic House Sections, a follow up to their best-selling Manual of Section. He is currently the President of the Board of Directors of Storefront for Art and Architecture.
