I just finished the site design for Bureau V. Its sort of a modulating atmosphere based mostly on the work I was doing earlier on interactive atmospherics. Using random color sets and blurs, cloud formations fade in and out of existence. Each time the site opens a new organization appears and can be regenerated endlessly by pressing the space bar. I’ve also set it up so that the user can modify the design, either by dragging the orbs around or by deleting them by pressing shift and clicking on them. There’s no content yet, that’s the next step.
I started this blog around the time I began to study architecture, as a way to track ideas of whatever scope and complexity, from a sketch to a building. Over time the site has become a chronicle and chronology of my thinking about architecture, from early experiments and speculative proposals to completed projects and buildings currently in progress. It is, inevitably, also a timeline of my professional education: studying with some of the best minds in architecture, working in influential practices, co-founding Bureau V, and eventually starting my own studio, PINCUS A+D.
