The Nightingale Floor is a contemporary reflection on the traditional Japanese flooring technique Uguisu-bari, an acoustic security device against sneaking intruders. The Nightingale Floor installation intends to invert this assertion, and becomes an invitation to intrude through tweets of feets and peeves of inks.

Located on the iconic Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame, the Woodbury University Hollywood gallery (WUHO) provides a welcoming space for multi-disciplinary, boundary-crossing collaboration that supports the study and practice of the design disciplines. WUHO is committed to hosting exhibitions that reposition important voices in architecture and design often overlooked by mainstream sources. In a city that notably does not have a permanent architecture collection in any of its major museums, WUHO provides a venue for emerging designers who would not otherwise have an opportunity to publicly display work. Woodbury University has occupied this 7500 square foot storefront and studio space since 1995 and provides free gallery programming throughout the year.
