Practice
Present Forms is a studio led by Stephanie Lin, based in New York and Arizona. Our work combines artistic and architectural modes of thinking, ranging in scale from environments to objects. As a practice we explore the techniques and reciprocities of materials, media, and form, uncovering their embedded narratives and spatial orders.

Present Forms is a member of Office III, a design collective co-founded with Sean Canty and Ryan Golenberg, and based across New York, Boston and San Francisco. In 2017 the three were finalists in the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program and completed the Governors Island Welcome Center in New York, NY that same year.

Present Forms' work has been exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), Storefront for Art and Architecture (New York, NY), The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (New York, NY), A+D Architecture and Design Museum (Los Angeles, CA), cneai= (Paris, France), citygroup (New York, NY), and a number of universities.
