Founder and principal Adam Sokol is a graduate of Columbia and Yale Universities and has also studied at Harvard University and the Université-Paris IV Sorbonne.  While at Columbia, Adam studied with renowned historian and curator Barry Bergdoll, and theorist and critic Kenneth Frampton.  Later at Yale he was an assistant to legendary historian Vincent Scully while also studying with noted architects Frank Gehry, Demetri Porphyrios, and Robert A.M. Stern. 

This unique background combining history and theory with design and practice continues to inform the work produced by the studio, with a keen interest in the broader spectrum of human history and culture, and a consideration of how that context may intelligently and critically influence contemporary practice.  Adam is a registered architect in the states of New York and California, and a member of the American Institute of Architects.
A native New Yorker, he can also be found in disguise as an enthusiastic Angeleno.  His interests include piano, photography, hiking and travel, and he speaks English, French and Spanish.
