who am I?

My name is Nicholas S. Coleman.  I am an architect, a writer, and a thinker based out of Los Angeles.  This website, frame, is a catalog of my thoughts, my convictions, and my interests, presented as they flow from me – in drawings.  I draw constantly, between four sketchbooks, a steno pad, any scrap of trace laying about my desk, or the corner of an old plot sheet.

As far as a biography goes, I hold architecture degrees from the University of Southern California and Yale, where I studied under Peter Eisenman, Robert A. M. Stern, and Demetri Porphyrios.  After graduation, I worked under Thomas Beeby in Chicago for two years before returning to my native Southern California.  You can see more of my professional and educational work at my personal website.
