Stephanie Lin
Stephanie Lin Studio

Stephanie Lin Studio is a design practice based in Brooklyn, New York. The studio engages in built and speculative projects through the exploration of open-ended methods and mediums, along with multi-disciplinary approaches that expand design’s practice and conversation. Her work aims to expose the complexities of materials and geometry that can lead to alternative spatial organizations and perceptions. In many of the projects, patterning plays a key role in situating attention.

Research Interests

Projects face lots of challenges during construction due to poor front end analysis and my research focuses on in-depth analysis of sustainable construction throughout the building lifecycle using building information modelling (BIM). Other interest includes construction management, IT, law, green and risk.

Combarel Emmanuel

Created after awarding the Albums de la Jeune Architecture in 1993 and the Villa Médicis Hors les Murs in 1996, the Emmanuel Combarel architecture agency dominique Marrec works on the definition of the living environment through the project architectural. Materialization of this thought, architecture finds its bases in the analysis of the evolutions and mutations of our society. Environmental quality, landscape, uses, lifestyles, and technical choices are all structural elements of the projects to be resonated. Based on the analysis of the evolutions and mutations of our society, the work of the office aims to propose a clear architecture without any a priori, nostalgia or stylistic concerns in the actual environmental and societal issues of our time.
