Architecture Lecture: Adam Frampton of Only If Architects

Event Type: Lecture
Facility: ROTC Auditorium (CWY)
Presented By: School of Arch. & Community Design
The USF SACD Spring 2018 lecture series presents Adam Frampton and Karolina Czeczek of Only If, a New York City-based design practice for architecture and urbanism founded in 2013. Only If is 
engaged in a range of design work from interiors to housing, to larger-scale urban design, research, and speculation. Only If is currently designing two residential projects set for completion in 2019; a 
narrow single-family house and an 84-unit affordable senior housing project, both located in Brooklyn, New York. Approaching any project, Only If seeks to focus on the fundamental questions and 
potentials. The ambition of this process is to create clarity and distill simplicity within often-complex circumstances and constraints. Rather than imposing additional regimes of complexity, we believe the 
role of the designer is to envision simple gestures and forms that impose structure, coherence, and identity.

In 2016, Only If was named part of PIN-UP Magazine’s New Power Generation and was awarded 
the Interior Emerging Practice of the Year by the World Interior News. Only If’s projects have been featured in the New Yorker, Architectural Digest, Frame, Azure, and the Architect’s Newspaper. Only 
If’s work is currently exhibited at 2017 Chicago Biennial and will be featured at upcoming 2017 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture (UABB) in Shenzhen.
