Expanded Practice: Höweler + Yoon Architecture/My Studio

By J. Meejin Yoon

Emerging stars in Boston's layout scene, architects Eric Hõweler and J. Meejin Yoon have in one decade built a name for radical experiments in architectural shape. Their layout methodology—what they name an "expanded practice"—combines extreme learn with interdisciplinary experimentation. Hõwelerand Yoon's sensational, competition-winning lighting fixtures access for the 2004 Athens Olympics exemplifies their fearless method: with none past adventure in public area interactive layout, the enterprise built a luminous, interactive soundscape set up on the base of the Acropolis. White Noise White gentle featured a box of semiflexible fiber-optic strands that emitted white gentle and white noise in accordance with the circulate of pedestrians. The venture, an incredible luck, enchanted a mess of tourists who moved amidst the cilia of sunshine. Expanded Practice provides twenty-nine fresh initiatives through this younger company encompassing a wide diversity of scales and media. The tasks, divided into specified yet frequently overlapping examine topics, comprise a museum courtyard software encouraged by means of the Voronoi cell-packing set of rules (PS1 Loop); an outside gentle install that includes soaring cones that seize and engage with solar power, rainwater, and sound (Hover); a garment designed to show within out because it unravels (Mõbius Dress); and a panorama layout that weaves know-how and texture into an built-in and interactive panorama (Tripanel). full of drawings, diagrams, and images of every project's layout approach, Expanded Practice offers an inspirational investigate some of the most fascinating younger organizations operating in structure at the present time.
