SCI-Arc design faculty Herwig Baumgartner and Scott Uriu, partners in the Los Angeles practice Baumgartner + Uriu (B+U), are exhibiting their work in a solo show opening June 8 at the InCITE Gallery in Bangalore, India. Titled Animated Apertures, the exhibition will be complemented by a presentation led by Baumgartner on opening night.
Through its exhibitions and publications centered on contemporary architecture, InCITE aims to create an open platform that allows for critical exchange, dissemination and recording of emerging architectural attitudes and sensibilities. Previous InCITE exhibitors include MVRDV, Mecanoo, Cloud 9, Kas Oosterhuis, and Brett Steel, among others.
Set on a continuous mission to research and experiment with new building materials and construction techniques, Baumgartner and Uriu use 3-D technology and manufacturing techniques employed outside the architectural profession. Their firm utilizes the techniques and resources of new technologies which are unique to Los Angeles and are a confluence from the movie industry, aerospace engineering, medical technology and manufacturing, automotive industries, as well as a subculture of craftsman, inventors and entrepreneurs. This mixture of cutting edge technology and individual resourcefulness influences their design and construction process.
B+Uís exhibition at InCITE remains on view through June 22. www.incite.co.in.
