Firm Faces #19: INC

This blog's "Firm Faces" has turned into a once-in-a-year, forgot-about-that feature, but I couldn't resist finding Incorporated's Twitter portrait a perfect addition to it. Not only do we not see their faces, but the six folks standing in front of five windows could easily be a band rather than an architecture firm. (Didn't Jesus and Mary Chain play shows with their backs turned to the audience?)

According to INC's Facebook page, the photo is their new office space at 9 East 19th Street and pictured are Adam Rolston, Louisa Brown, Drew Clay Stuart, Tyler Kleck, Hilary Fulmer and Gabriel Benroth. Check out Incorporated's website for the real faces of the partners Rolston, Stuart, and Benroth, and for more on the NYC firm.

      PS: bought your book last year...great piece of work Congrats

    2. Ah, yes, I definitely see the influence there. Thanks for pointing it out.

      And thanks for the kind words re: my guidebook.

  2. I agree, I think it is an allusion to Mad Men. I had a history teacher in high school I used to talk to about music and he once told me he saw The Cure play live with their back to the crowd the whole time. Not sure if the Jesus and Mary Chain did, though...
