Present Forms is a studio led by Stephanie Lin and based in New York. Our work combines artistic and architectural modes of thinking, ranging in scale from buildings and interiors to installations and objects. Many of our projects explore crossings of subtle geometries and optical materialities as mediums for new perceptual frameworks and spatial types.

Present Forms is a founding member of Office III, a design collective with Sean Canty and Ryan Golenberg. In 2017 the three were finalists in the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program and completed the Governors Island Welcome Center in New York 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), as well as at a number of universities.

Stephanie received her B.A. in Architecture from UC Berkeley and her M.Arch I AP from Harvard GSD. She has been named the incoming dean at The School of Architecture. Prior to this position she most recently taught at the Cooper Union School of Architecture, and has been faculty at UC Berkeley, Pratt Institute, and Columbia University GSAPP.
