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.

Architecture in the Emirates

Taschen has just published AE Architecture in the Emirates  featuring the Strata Tower, a project I led the design for while working at Asymptote Architecture. The survey covers built work as well as projects under development and includes some phenomenal as well as phenomenally terrible projects. Also of note, my business partner (and friend) Stella Lee’s design for the Guggenheim Pavilions on Saddiyat Island are also included.
