A fascinating account of the story of the Yves Saint Laurent Museum in Marrakech – and a gorgeous homage to creativity

Conceived as a candid diary, this remarkable book documents the 1,423 days that it took to design, build, and inaugurate a beloved architecture and fashion destination. From the moment the up-and-coming French-Moroccan practice Studio KO received a call from YSL’s longtime partner Pierre Bergé to the opening of the museum’s doors in 2017, one month after Bergé died, the entire process of bringing the building to life – its commission, the creative process behind it, and its construction – is told and illustrated here as never before.

Based in Paris and Marrakech and founded in 2000 by Karl Fournier and Olivier Marty, StudioKO is one of the most interesting upcoming architecture and interior design practices working today. Renowned for their minimalist aesthetic and attention to craftsmanship and local skills, the duo creates contemporary public and residential architecture all over the world.
