“There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.” – Sir Francis Bacon

Marcus Myerholtz joined Pelli Clarke & Partners in 2014. He chose the profession of architecture to create spaces and worlds that engage, enrich, and delight what already exists. He strongly believes that the most successful projects are those that meaningfully contribute to the ongoing conversation of architecture. His recent work includes the LEED Platinum and first nearly Zero-Energy Building in Italy—Gioia 22 in Milan, the multi-building, world-corporate headquarters and training campus for American Airlines in Fort Worth, Texas, the Alberni Towers in Vancouver, and Tora Asa in Tokyo, which will be the tallest building in Japan upon completion. Marcus holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Illinois at Chicago and a Master of Architecture from The Ohio State University.
