This exhibit is comprised of four recent project by the New York based firm Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis Architects (LTL). The projects are Water Proving Ground—a speculative approach to New York City’s harbor in anticipation of sea level change, commissioned by MoMA; Arthouse at the Jones Center—a contemporary art center in Austin Texas; Sullivan Family Student Center—a student lounge for the College of Education at the University of Wyoming in Laramie; and Lobby Wall—a site specific sculpture for Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s entry lobby in their forthcoming building in New York City. The projects range from 69 million to 108 square feet, yet each is predicated on a strategy of optimistic opportunism, whereby experiments and inventions are teased out of the very constraints of each project. This site specific installation foregrounds the productive role of drawing in LTL’s work, turning the walls and floor into etched and printed surfaces.
In conjunction with the exhibit, LTL’s recently completed Claremont University Consortium’s Administrative Center in Claremont, California is part of the LA Forum’s 2011 On the Map Series- Varying Degrees.
More of LTL’s work can be seen here.
WUHO is located between Metro Redline stops: Hollywood & Vine and Hollywood & Highland. Street parking available, parking lot in the rear of the building.
