The Woodbury School of Architecture Fall 2016 events kick off on September 8 at WUHO – the Woodbury University Hollywood Outpost – with Form Work, an exhibition by Yasushi Ishida.
Ishida, who is a visiting professor at Woodbury School of Architecture, presents the culmination of a year-long design research project. The exhibition showcases work produced during academic year 2015 – 2016 in collaboration with architecture students at Woodbury.
The work consists of a series of experiments with flexible sheet form work for concrete to create a variety of structures. It aims to discover novel aesthetic potentials of the flexible sheet form work technique and aspires to invent a design process that is informed by material behavior.
Join us for the opening night event on Thursday, September 8, at 6pm. The exhibition will be on view until October 2, 2016.
Located on the iconic Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame, the Woodbury University Hollywood Outpost (WUHO) invites a broad and diverse audience to a vital and celebratory place for learning about architecture and interior architecture. Woodbury University has occupied this 7500 square foot storefront and studio space since 1995.
The WUHO gallery provides a showcase for architecture and interior architecture’s myriad forms: from exhibitions of scholarly research, multi-media screenings, group photography exhibitions, drawing and model showcases, a space for full-scale mock-ups, prototypes and environmental installations, to workshops, symposia, lectures, book launches, gallery talks, performances, and community and city planning forums. The upstairs studio at WUHO is host to a fluctuating group of emerging and experimental architects, interior architects and artists, who are also Woodbury faculty members, and provides another rich layer for multi-disciplinary, boundary-crossing dialogue and collaboration.
The facility is shared with the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design.
