I was daydreaming and thinking of the day when I start my own practice and I was wondering what some of you would name your studio/firm.

This is just for fun.

YOUR NAME ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN AIA ARCHITECTS & ASSOC.

that should cover all the basics.

1.then i would change the name to:
-the postneo project
(rembrandt to the great band "the tony rich project", like a clown i put on a show)
2. then i would have a short stint as:
-terrestrial death monkey design company inc.
3.when i realize that with a name like that i will never get a quality project i will chance the name again, but this time to;
-Frank O. Gehry & Assoc.
4.realizing that name is taken and having a nervous breakdown because i think all the good names are taken i will name my firm
-a+d=art
because it doesn't really make any sense and mean anything millions will flock to my doors for my obtuse design and analytical skills, also to here my rhetoric archibable every Thursday at 6:oo, 5 dollars at the door please.
5. then in my old age i would once again change the name to;
-SRKLS
and i shall accomplish all this by the time i am 43 years of age.

first, i'll go with:

33° 39' N 84° 26' W

someone will call me a copycat.
then, i'll turn to something more jazzy:

[SYN]ergISt Studio

i'll get tired of it pretty quickly.
then, i'll go with:

Backdoor Design

the double entendre will scare clients.
i will then try something more pragmatic:

On-Time, On-Budget Architecture

this will only last until people discover that it's not true.
then i'll incorporate a fleeting pop culture reference:

Lindsey Lohantecture

this will not be effective after the world forgets her.
i will try to specify my market segment:

Strip Mall and Parking Lot Design Group

but i'll be ashamed to give anyone my business card.
finally, i'll be left with the old standby:

j & Associates Architects

(sigh...)

My initials: ATR. ATR Architects...ofcourse this may be received with some negativity since I most likely will start the Firm up with otherse and the fact that the firms is MY initials may piss them off. So I have decided to search for partners with last names beginning with A and T and therefore sacraficing all requirements for such partners to be at all qualified.

what's with the woody on Cruela Hadid? if you seen her lecture once that's enough! I am sure she is using the same images as circa 1995( which were very cool) with one or two recent rederings, that don't come near the quality of her earlier personal work.

Oh I just remembered in school I thought "ZinkWorks" would be a cool firm name - a variation on my last name.

And I'm also still laughing at the methane post. oh god hilarious!
