We love a good story at Cronk Duch. Creating (or reflecting on) a story becomes one of the key foundations of architecture and initiates an important opportunity for dialog about architecture and urban place. The unique location of Cronk Duch Architecture's St. Augustine Studio, within the 1926 Florida National Bank building on the Plaza de la Constitucion, allows a unique and applicable analysis in our focus on urban fabrics. As historic St. Augustine's first and only Skyscraper (as well as one of Florida's first) it provides the catalyst to our discussion of urban intervention (new buildings within old places) and its effects on Place. This effort is to collectively appreciate, advocate, study and ultimately create responsible architecture within these vital areas of our communities. Our goal in developing these stories is not an academic thesis of the places we visit and work but one of exposure and exploration. Is there a better place to start this dialog than within the first urban fabric and the place we work?
