Stephanie Lin Studio is the design practice of Stephanie Lin, a Canadian architectural designer based in New York. Stephanie creates experimental spaces and objects oriented toward collective experiences, working with material logics and techniques in alternative ways to organize form, structure, and their perceptual properties. In many of her projects, patterning plays a key role in organizing vision. Stephanie has worked on projects ranging from architecture and design to film and performance.

Stephanie received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley, and her Master of Architecture from Harvard University where she received the Faculty Design Award and the AIA Merit Certificate. Her thesis at Harvard was titled Reframing the Tourist Gaze in which she explored the potential of architecture as an instrument of vision. Stephanie has taught architecture studios at UC Berkeley, The Cooper Union Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture, Pratt Institute School of Architecture, and is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia University GSAPP.

Stephanie Lin is a founding member of Office III design collective along with with Sean Canty and Ryan Golenberg. The three were recently shortlisted for the 2017 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Award and have completed a new Welcome Center on Governors Island in New York City. They have exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), Storefront for Art and Architecture (New York, NY), and the A+D Architecture and Design Museum (Los Angeles, CA).
