The AIANY New Practices Committee hosts a series of lectures by winning firms of the New Practices New York 2018 Competition. This lecture series will be held at the new Benjamin Moore showroom. New Practices New York, a biennial competition since 2006, serves as New York City’s preeminent platform to recognize and promote new and innovative architecture and design firms. This evening’s talk will feature a conversation between Karolina Czeczek and Adam Frampton, AIA, principals of Only If, and Dan Wood of WORKac.
Only If is a design practice for architecture and urbanism founded in 2013 by Karolina Czeczek and Adam Frampton, AIA. Their work is based on an intimate engagement with construction processes, local policies and conditions, and cultural and community organizations. The firm translates urban techniques to an architectural scale to rethink qualities of duration and change. Only If believes that, rather than imposing additional complexity, the role of the designer is to envision simple gestures and forms to impose structure, coherence, and identity.
