BplusU Launches First Monograph of Work

BplusU, the firm of faculty member Herwig Baumgartner and partner Scott Uriu, will host a book signing event for their recently released monograph, Vectorfields, in conjunction with an exhibition of their work opening at Woodbury University Hollywood Gallery on Thursday, November 4.

Vectorfield is comprehensive account of the design duo's activity over the past 10 years. Work presented ranges from conceptual projects utilizing sound as a generator for geometry and space, to urban utopias imagining what our cities will look like in 200 years from now, and built work and projects that are currently under development.

Among designs featured in the new book: the Taipei Performing Arts Center, Taiwan; the Tall Emblem Structure for Dubai, UAE; the Firestone Boulevard office building in Downey, California; Villas in Al Ain, UAE; the Cohen residence and the Frank/Kim residence in Pasadena, California; Soundcloud and Sound City- two urban intervention projects based on sound in downtown Los Angeles; and City Futura- a utopian urban proposal for the city of Milan, Italy that was featured at the 2010 Venice Biennale.
