    Oyler Wu Collaborative: Often the unusual circumstances surrounding the design of a project leads to the most unusual results. In the case of this temporary sales center in Taipei by Oyler Wu Collaborative, the convergence of a set of ongoing architectural interests converged with an unusual site, timeline, program, and developer to create an unexpected outcome.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Oyler Wu Collaborative: Designed and built by the office of Oyler Wu Collaborative along with students of the Southern California Institute of Architecture, Stormcloud is the third project in a series of installations designed for SCI-ARC. The previous two installations, Netscape and Centerstage were designed for the school’s graduation ceremonies in 2011 and 2012 respectively. With SCI-Arc celebrating its 40th anniversary, the school commissioned the new pavilion for the after-party of its April 2013 gala. Tasked with the challenge of revamping the existing Netscape pavilion, Oyler Wu Collaborative saw the project as an opportunity to take a completely different approach to the problem.

    In his well known essay, ”Translations from Drawings to Buildings,” critic Robin Evans articulates that architects are challenged by the fact that, unlike other artistic pursuits, we don’t directly manipulate our medium—we don’t build buildings—and that, therefore, we develop complex traffic between drawings and buildings. Oyler Wu Collaborative has challenged that notion. First, they extend the design of their work well into the fabrication phase by constructing many of the projects themselves. Second, they have expanded the notion of lines to operate beyond a 2-D drawing by literally constructing lines in three dimensions to become architecture.

  • Screenplay
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    Screenplay is conceived of as a “play” on one’s visual perception. This twenty-one foot long screen wall is constructed of forty-five thousand linear feet of rope strung through a series of lightweight steel frames. The wall is designed with the intention of provoking a sense of curiosity by slowly revealing its form and complexity through physical and visual engagement with the work. The wall is made from a repetitious steel framework with rope infill that varies over the length of the wall in three dimensions, forming a thickened undulating screen made up of dense line-work. In its orthographic, or “straight-on” view, the wall forms a meticulously organized series of patterns easily recognized by the viewer.
