Robinson’s primary academic research emerges from the intrinsic relationship between architectural and artistic modes of representation with an emphasis on process and production. He posits that these relations are dialectical and that to enter into this research he must simultaneously embrace both theoretical and material processes in his own work; wherein which they inform both formal and narrative spatial systems manifesting as concrete material forms. Robinson argues that architecture is a form of representation.

Robinson attended university in music theory, served a 5-year apprenticeship in the atelier of a master industrial patter-maker/woodworker and subsequent to his apprenticeship began studio Paul O Robinson.

He received a master’s degree with high honors from the University of Florida School of Architecture (SoA), at which time he received the national AIA Henry Adams Medal for design excellence. In 2004 he began teaching design seminar and theory courses at the SoA and in 2009 was awarded a Fulbright Scholar Fellowship in art & architecture to Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Within his primary studio, located in Ljubljana, Slovenia, x-rays, paintings and 3-dimensional constructions are developed as correspondences between art and space. studio Paul O Robinson is presently developing a major body of work titled Site Castings: Entwinements From Palazzo Fortuny, Venice, Italy.
