On Thursday, April 25, from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm Helms Bakery District and the Cal Poly LA Metro Program in Architecture and Urban Design are excited to host a reception, lecture, and discussion with Dwayne Oyler and Jenny Wu of Oyler Wu Collaborative.
Oyler Wu Collaborative
Dwayne Oyler and Jenny Wu established the architecture and design firm of Oyler Wu Collaborative in Los Angeles in 2004. The firm is recognized for its experimentation in design, material research, and fabrication, and was the winner of the 2013 Design Vanguard Award from Architectural Record and the 2017 J. Irwin and Xenia S. Miller Prize.
Their recently completed projects include the competition-winning design, The Exchange, for Exhibit Columbus, a 3D printing Culinary Lab in Los Angeles, and the Monarch Tower, a 16-story residential high rise in Taipei, Taiwan. The office was recently selected by the City of Los Angeles to design the LA River Bikeway and Greenway project, a large scale public project. The office has won numerous awards including, the 2013 Emerging Talent Award from AIA California Council, the 2012 Presidential Honor Award for Emerging Practice from AIA LA, Taiwan’s ADA Award for Emerging Architect, and the 2011 Emerging Voices Award from the Architectural League in New York.
Their book, Pendulum Plane, was published in 2009 by the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design, and a more recent book, Trilogy: SCI-Arc Pavilions, was published by SCI-Arc Press. Both partners are members of the design faculty at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) and have been visiting instructors at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Syracuse University, and Columbia GSAPP.
Introduced and moderated by Stephen Phillips, AIA, PhD, Principal of Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS) and professor, director, Cal Poly LA Metro Program in Architecture and Urban Design (California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo)
