Present Forms is a studio led by Stephanie Lin and based in Brooklyn, New York. We are an experimental and design practice that engages in projects at the scales of environments, installations, and objects. Our work aims to bring direction and focus to how we interface with the public realm, uncovering the complexities of geometric and material optics as the mediums for new perceptual frameworks and prolonged experiences.

Present Forms is a founding member of Office III, a design collective with Studio Sean Canty and Ryan Golenberg. The collective was a finalist for the 2017 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Award. They have exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), Storefront for Art and Architecture (New York, NY), and the A+D Architecture and Design Museum (Los Angeles, CA).

Stephanie received her B.A. in Architecture from UC Berkeley and her M.Arch I with Advanced Placement from Harvard GSD where she received the Faculty Design Award and the AIA Merit Certificate. She is currently an Adjunct Associate Professor at the Cooper Union School of Architecture and has taught architecture studios at UC Berkeley, Pratt Institute, and Columbia University GSAPP.
