Studio Florian Pucher

Founder

Yes, this is me. Projects featured in this portfolio don't include any of the work I did for other companies, just what I did under my own name, mostly self initiated product design or competitions. I do what I like and what interests me for the sake of experimenting which makes these projects uncompromised and authentic.

Office For Metropolitan Architecture (OMA)

Intern

A great experience working with enthusiastic people and REM KOOLHAAS. I worked on a few competitions but mainly on CCTV headquater for Beijing, one of the most iconic and striking structures. I consider myself lucky to having had access to the site and the chance to see the building grow over the past eight years.
