The Making of Screenplay: Week 11

Jenny Wu, a partner at Oyler Wu Collaborative, documents the process from design through fabrication of their latest installation, Screenplay, to be featured at the upcoming Dwell on Design 2012. Part 11: Seeing the Light at the End of the Tunnel. No one in the office has taken a day off since Memorial Day. According to our calculations (based on the average speed of completing a single bay), we optimistically think we can complete the entire installation by the end of this week but, most likely, by early next week. Since the last post, we have nearly doubled our workforce with additional student volunteers, friends, and even family. When we finished the first module and propped it vertically as it will be shown, it was so exhilarating and exciting to see it all come together. We can’t wait to show it at Dwell on Design!

Coolest Homes for Artists & Art Collectors

We at Dwell are always on the lookout for unique homes that express the personality of their occupants—and it's no wonder some of the most unique and memorable residences we've featured in recent years belong to artists and art collectors, who embrace the quirky and the unconventional. Join us at Dwell on Design Sunday, June 24th, where we're inviting architect Tom Marble, collector Jeff Wardell, and architect Linda Taalman onstage to chat about ways architecture can best highlight and showcase art. To whet your appetite, flip through our slideshow for a look at some of our favorite homes designed around the display and making-of art, from a famous conceptual artist's industrial-inspired rowhouse in New York City to a street art collector's shipping crate-filled loft in San Francisco.

The Making of Screenplay: Part 10

Jenny Wu, a partner at Oyler Wu Collaborative, documents the process from design through fabrication of their latest installation, Screenplay, to be featured at the upcoming Dwell on Design 2012. Part 10: The Final Stretch. Good news or bad news first? The good news is that the effect of the silver polypropylene rope looping around the steel frame is as beautiful and intense as we had imagined and, in some ways, even better than we had hoped. The “plane” of rope is becoming incredibly spatial and the steel framework is merging nicely with the rope. The bad news is that we are entirely off of our original schedule.

The Making of Screenplay: Part 9

Jenny Wu, a partner at Oyler Wu Collaborative, documents the process from design through fabrication of their latest installation, Screenplay, to be featured at the upcoming Dwell on Design 2012. Part 8: Roping Tests. Looking back at the build process so far, this week has undoubtedly been the most stressful to date. We scheduled a certain amount of time for the roping process without knowing exactly how long it would really take us to rope the entire structure. Based on the physical model, we knew that it would not be simple, but we just didn’t know how far off we were from the time we had allotted for this process. Aside from the time issue, there were many details that we had to resolve as well, in terms of the techniques of wrapping and ending the rope, reconciling intersecting planes of rope, and finalizing the number of ropes per plane.

The Making of Screenplay: Part 8

Jenny Wu, a partner at Oyler Wu Collaborative, documents the process from design through fabrication of their latest installation, Screenplay, to be featured at the upcoming Dwell on Design 2012. Part 8: The Unknown As the majority of the metal fabrication is nearly complete, we’re looking forward to the next phase of construction with a lot of questions and anxiety. While we have had some experience with rope as a medium, we really haven’t worked with rope in this specific way. We have strategically divided the team into two, with one continuing to fabricate the rest of the steel framework while the other focuses on completing one of the four-unit modules (including final painting and connections between modules). This process is a way to troubleshoot all of the steel issues and also ahead on a single module that can be used for testing of the rope. Completing a single module will allow the team to move forward with the roping of one module while also determining how long the roping process will take.

The Making of Screenplay: Part 7

Jenny Wu, a partner at Oyler Wu Collaborative, documents the process from design through fabrication of their latest installation, Screenplay, to be featured at the upcoming Dwell on Design 2012. Part 7: From 2D to 3D Up to this point, we have been working with two-dimensional profiles that have been relatively easy to construct because we are able to build them flat on the platform. Now that we have completed the profiles, the difficulty level quickly has become exponentially higher as we attempt to connect the profiles together in three-dimensional space.
