David Boira and I are partners this semester in a housing research design studio. In a somewhat related spin off, we are making this highly articulated yet completely de-calibrated furniture object. It is a piece that comes with no agenda other than encouraging the user to figure out their own potential uses by reconfiguring it into different spatial and performative organizations. It will be made from water-jet cut aluminum panels, cnc milled hinge plates, and automotive linear actuators.
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.
