Design Awards Announces First Juror for Unbuilt Awards

Design Awards Committee is pleased to announce Jenny Wu of Oyler-Wu Collaborative as a juror for the 2015 unbuilt design awards.

Jenny Wu is a founding partner of Oyler Wu Collaborative and currently teaches first year design studio at SCI-Arch.  She received her undergraduate degree from Columbia and her Masters of Architecture from Harvard.  The Oyler Wu Collaborative, founded in 2004 with Dwayne Oyler, is a multi-faceted practice with a strong focus on small-scale installations and fabrication as well as the design of large projects across the world. Many projects are experimental in nature and are actually fabricated by the members of the practice themselves. This enables the design to further evolve and progress, even as it is being constructed.  The practice has won numerous awards; 2013 Design Vanguard Award (from Architectural Record), 2013 Emerging Talent Award (from AIA California Council),and Taiwan’s ADA Award for Emerging Architect among others.  

In addition to her work at Oyler Wu, she has designed a collection of 3D-printed jewelry entitled LACE.  This project applies her design sensibilities to an even smaller scale, and utilizes 3D printing to create pieces impossible to produce by any other method.

Jenny has published a book, Primitives, in addition to Pendulum Plane and Trilogy: SCI-ARC Pavilions by Oyler Wu.

We look forward to having Jenny Wu as a juror. Her experimental work and innovative practice will provide an invaluable contribution to the newly reformatted Unbuilt Design Awards.
