DIALOGUES: Oyler Wu Collaborative
Studies in Line, Surface, and Volume
2019.07.20 SAT –11.17 SUN
Oyler Wu Collaborative is a Los Angeles-based architecture and design firm founded by Dwayne Oyler and Jenny Wu in 2004. The firm is recognized for its experimentation in fabrication, material research, and design work that challenges the typical vision of the built environment. Dialogues: Oyler Wu Collaborative informing the trajectories of the firm through continued interests in line, surface, and volume. Their collection of work establishes their insistence for hands-on experimentation, which permeates an approach that operates at every scale – from hand drawing to highly-refined jewelry, large scale infrastructural projects to handcrafted artifacts.
Oyler Wu Collaborative believes in the idea that architecture’s full potential is born out of its ability to operate simultaneously at multiple scales as an art form, affecting human experience in non-linear ways from dynamic architectural strategies to intimate forms of engagement.
