Mixing a broad range of influences, from music and art to Italian Radical design, American architect Jon Lott has been heading his architecture practice, Para Project from his New York base since 2007. Lott's award-winning portfolio features the white Haffenden House, a home and writing studio in Syracuse, New York, while current commissions include two projects for the Syracuse University, the design development of a private house on Skaneateles Lake, and an artist's compound in Marbletown, New York. He hopes to work on an even bigger variety of new typologies and contexts in the future. In addition to his independent work with Para Project, Lott was also recently developed the project-based partnership Collective-LOK, together with architects Michael Kubo and William O'Brien Jr (Architects Directory 2013). The team has already been awarded the contract to design the new Van Alen Institute and has been shortlisted for this year's prestigious MoMA PS1 Young Architects competition.
