Woodbury University Hollywood Outpost’s second show of the Fall 2017 series, Studio Fuksas, opens on Saturday, October 7, at 6:00pm. The Studio Fuksas exhibition, co-sponsored by AIA Los Angeles, consists of five videos exploring Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas’s most recent and iconic architectural works.
The video exhibition follows in the footsteps of the WUHO gallery’s previous exhibits intended to demystify the discipline of architecture, making possible unconventional multifaceted and interdisciplinary design approaches. Massimilano Fuksas, when asked in a recent interview what he thought was necessary to ensure the future relevance of a project, commented:
“DISCIPLINE, combined with INSTINCT and INTUITION, takes us to the land of the UNFAMILIAR. That is where the IDEA is transformed into ACTION, giving birth to the SYMBOL, where the IMAGE and EMOTION coexist. […] FREEDOM is generated by KNOWLEDGE. One must learn how to choose to remain relevant in the FUTURE. We architects need to design in a way that advocates for PEACE rather than war. We need to DESIGN towards a world that is WITHOUT BORDERS and is MORE JUST.”
The show will run through Sunday, October 29, 2017. Gallery hours: Thursdays 1:00–8:00 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays 1:00–6:00 p.m.
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. The facility is shared with the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design.
