    From the New York website: Speaking in the first person is taboo at Robert A.M. Stern Architects. When discussing the design process, architects at the firm will constantly use the refrain: “So, that’s very important to us.” It’s an element of the hive mind philosophy that leaps out at you when touring the firm’s Far West Side workshop.

    The Real Deal visited on a typical, noisy weekday: The space was littered with sketches, models, renderings and images used for research and various tools of design. Dividers separated the open space into individual meeting rooms for various groups (the firm can be working on more than 100 projects simultaneously). Scattered around were photographs of arches, rough ink sketches of facades, lumps of clay and cans of diet coke (the fuel of choice for the entire company, according to Whalen). Amid the chaos, employees don jackets and ties.

    For an in-depth look into the working process of Robert A.M. Stern Architects, watch the video after the jump.[more]
