Firm Bio | 公司简介

Dwayne Oyler and Jenny Wu established the architecture and design firm of Oyler Wu Collaborative in Los Angeles in 2004. The office has been published globally and is recognized for its experimentation in design and innovative strategies.  Their current work ranges from small scale installations to large scale commercial and residential buildings in the US and Asia.  Jenny Wu received a Bachelor of Arts from Columbia University and a Master of Architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Dwayne Oyler received a Bachelor of Architecture from Kansas State University and a Master of Architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Both partners currently teach design studio at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc).

Their book, Pendulum Plane, was published in 2009 by the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design, and most recently, a book entitled, reALIze, was published in 2011.  In 2010, they received the first annual “Arch Is” award given by the AIA Los Angeles for emerging talents in architectural design. They have been invited to lecture at the University of Southern California, Texas Tech, Tamkang University, and Arizona University.  The office has recently exhibited at the Beijing Biennale, the Guggenheim Museum in New York, and the London Festival of Architecture.

Oyler Wu Collaborative由Dwayne Oyler 和 Jenny Wu于2004年在洛杉矶成立。办公室的设计以及创新在全球范围得到了认可。项目分布在美国和亚洲,从小尺度装置到大型的商业及住宅项目均有涉猎。Jenny Wu在哥伦比亚大学获得文学学士学位,在哈佛大学获得建筑学硕士学位。Dwayne Oyler在卡萨斯州立大学获得建筑学学士学位,在哈佛大学获得建筑学硕士学位。

办公室的两位合伙人都在南加州建筑学院(SCI-Arc)任教。他们的第一本著作《Pendulum Plane》在2009年出版,最近,2011年他们出版了另外一本著作《reALIze》。2010年,他们荣获AIA 洛杉矶建筑新人“ArchIs”奖。

他们被邀请至南加州大学,德克萨斯技术大学,淡江大学,亚利桑那大学演讲。办公室最近参加了北京双年展,纽约古根海姆以及伦敦建筑节的展出。

Office | 办公空间

The office of Oyler Wu Collaborative is located on a vibrant commercial street in the design-oriented Silver Lake area of Los Angeles.  The building itself has been a project for the office and involves an ongoing series of interventions and transformations, beginning with the renovation of the building and growing to include a fence, with several (constantly evolving) additions in the works.  The building includes the design office of Oyler Wu, as well as a private residence on the second floor.  The exterior of the building is an austere two-story volume clad in fiber-reinforced cement board with deep, recessed aluminum windows. The interior of the building combines exposed 1930’s wood frame construction with simple modern detailing.

办公室坐落在洛杉矶银湖区充满活力的街道上,办公室建筑本身就是事务所的改建作品,此外建筑外围的围栏也由事务所设计。建筑一层是设计办公室,二层是私人住宅。建筑外观是朴素的水泥纤维增强板,铝合金窗户深嵌其中,内部则暴露出1930年代的简洁现代的木结构。

Design Philosophy | 设计哲学

Relocating from New York to Los Angeles in 2004, our office has utilized the last seven years to establish a way of working that is committed to experimentation through a relentless hands-on approach to our work.  Heavily invested in academia (currently both of us teach at Sci-Arc, the Southern California Institute of Architecture ), we consider it our obligation as instructors and architects to not only put ideas forward, but to test their application.  We believe that ideas find their greatest potency through the feedback of human experience, material resistance, and iterative processes.

Eager to test our ideas, and impatient in our desire to see the effects of our work, our office has turned to our own love of building to transform small projects with modest budgets into a testing ground for our ideas.  Los Angeles, Sci-Arc, and most recently, Taipei, have served as an invaluable test bed for our ambitions.  Most of our installations are work that we have built ourselves.  This way of working has grown out of necessity, an insistence on detail driven work on small budgets, and out of the desire to allow the design process to continually respond to feedback provided by the fabrication process.  The lack of conventional separation between the architectural and construction fields has allowed us to use the construction phase as an extension to the design process.  It has also provided a more direct translation of ideas from digital form to reality, while ensuring a level of articulation often difficult to achieve through a more conventional means of construction. It has been a period of material discovery, invention, and experimentation that comes only through the difficult, but profoundly rewarding task of realizing the work on a given site.  Most importantly, that knowledge brought with it new concepts for building that went beyond the material itself- one that is interested in extending the role of experimental work to better engage ideas of use and human engagement.

In the past 6 years, our office has expanded on the initial ideas to include larger and more robust projects. The office continues to rely on the constant exchange between design and making, often with small intense installations being built alongside the design of large-scale projects.  We believe that this insistence on hands-on experimentation should remain one of our most fundamental philosophies and is the key to our continued growth and evolution.

从2004年建立到现在的7年之间,办公室一直坚持将手动实验融入到工作中。在学术界(两位合伙人都在SCI-Arc任教),他们认为老师不仅仅要让学生提出自己的想法,还应该让他们实践。他们相信思想发挥最大效力需要经过自身实践,突破物质阻力,反复推进。

他们渴望实现自己的想法,于是迫不及待的在自己的办公室改建项目上进行了实践。洛杉矶,SCI-Arc,最近还有台北,都为建筑师的想法提供了实践的温床。在有限预算中坚持细节,在建造过程中不断的修正设计,都是事务所坚持的工作方式。建筑和建造之间的分隔使得事务所把施工阶段看成设计阶段的延伸。这同时也将想法实现得更彻底,并保持了一个通常难以达到的高完成度。在一个工作上经过发现,创造,实践这一系列不易的进程,获得了巨大的收获。最重要的是,这些知识赋予建筑的新概念是超越物质本身的,工作的范畴已被超越,人更好的发挥与执行了思想。

在过去的6年中,办公室已经按照最初的计划接受更大更多的项目。但是对待设计和制造的态度依然未变,在大尺度的项目旁边就是激进的装置项目。手动实验实践是建筑师最根本的理念,也是他们成长和发展的关键。
