Adam Snow Frampton, Only if

Only If is a New York City-based design practice for architecture and urbanism founded in 2013. The practice currently consists of 5 architects and designers engaged in a range of design work from a single-family housing prototype to larger-scale urban design, research, and speculation. 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.
 
In 2015 and 2016, Only If completed two projects in New York City: an espresso bar in the Fulton Street subway and an 18,000SF office interior and fashion showroom. These projects have been featured in Dezeen, ArchDaily, The New Yorker, Architectural Digest, FRAME, Azure, PIN-UP and the Architect’s Newspaper. Only If is currently designing two residential projects in Brooklyn set for completion in 2018 and 2019; a narrow single family house and an 84-unit affordable senior housing project.

Adam Snow Frampton is an architect and the Principal of Only If. He is also an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Columbia Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation. He previously worked as an Associate at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) in Rotterdam and Hong Kong from 2006-2013. During almost seven years there, he was involved in over 20 projects, responsible for leading teams producing architectural and urban designs in China, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Bahrain, and India. Most significantly, he worked on OMA’s competition-winning design of the Taipei Performing Arts Center from 2008-2013 and led several phases of its design and construction. His independent research on Hong Kong urbanism has been published as the co-authored Cities Without Ground, which maps the city’s three-dimensional networks of pedestrian circulation and public space. His work has been exhibited in the 12th and 14th Venice Biennale, the Museum of Modern Art, Storefront for Art and Architecture, the Center for Architecture, and the Van Alen Institute, New York. He holds a Masters in Architecture from Princeton University School of Architecture and a Bachelors of Environmental Design Summa cum Laude from the University of Colorado Boulder. He is a registered architect in the Netherlands and the United States, and a member of the American Institute of Architects.

Karolina is also a Visiting Professor at College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) at University of Cincinnati. She previously worked at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) in Rotterdam and Hong Kong from 2010-2013, where she was involved in architectural and urban projects in the Netherlands, Australia, China, Morocco, and Egypt. Her independent research on Warsaw’s public pools, was selected as finalist for 2015 Praktyka scholarship program for young architects.
