I started this blog around the time I began to study architecture, as a way to track ideas of whatever scope and complexity, from a sketch to a building. Over time the site has become a chronicle and chronology of my thinking about architecture, from early experiments and speculative proposals to completed projects and buildings currently in progress. It is, inevitably, also a timeline of my professional education: studying with some of the best minds in architecture, working in influential practices, co-founding Bureau V, and eventually starting my own studio, PINCUS A+D.

Intel and Vice Magazine's Creators Project Interviews Eli Sudbrack about Original Music Workshop

What Is Form?

Martha Graham What is Form
Martha Graham Book Cover

Searching for interesting letterhead design work, I came across AMASSBLOG, and then these great words from a book on Martha Graham:

What is Form?
Form is the
Memory of Spiritual
Content. When
do Form and
Content Meet?
Form and Content
meet in Action

Funnily enough, "What is Form?" is the title of my forthcoming book of interviews with architects, designers, and theorists on the nature of form.

Smart Design:MW  

Looking into who was behind the blog, I discovered the amazing graphic studio DESIGN:MW run by JP and Allison Williams. They have a 20 year history fantastic work, and I'm sorry I was not aware of them until now.

Vintage Strata Tower Photos


Looking through an old hard drive, I came across these great Polaroid photos of a 3D printed model of the Strata Tower that we made while I was at Asymptote Architecture.

Super Barge Schematic Design

Super Barge

We recently presented these preliminary concept images of a floating restaurant, bar, and event space called Super Barge. While the renderings look somewhat developed, they are really just quick sketches to get an idea across. 

After a positive reception at our initial meetings, we spent a good bit of time researching the logistics and budget of fully developing the project. We're heading into a new round of development now, and looking forward to radically improving the design, particularly given the interesting possibilities we discovered while doing our homework.
