Chip Minnick began his space-making endeavors while studying sculpture at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. After a shift of interest in scale and content, he departed for Boston Architectural Center, executing undergraduate studies at night while working full-time in architectural and interior design practices. He continued his education at Southern California Institute of Architecture, earning a Master of Architecture degree and an AIA Henry Adams Certificate. Upon finishing graduate school, he joined Frank O. Gehry and Associates where he worked as a designer on the Ray and Maria Stata Center at MIT. He currently works as a practitioner at his Oakland office, F/36. F/36 focuses largely on single-family residential work, while maintaining a parallel system of related conceptual work. Pop culture, media saturation, and political polarity are constant player's in Chip's work.
