UEO 's new project Sensory Mass will be part of the Urban Dream Exhibition. 

Gu Yu Art Festival is an art exhibition founded by Shuxintang·Sheng Space. It aims to explore the potential of different media and discover young artists, designers, curators, and filmmakers. The concept of Gu Yu comes from the twenty-four solar terms, expressing the unique concept of time between man and the natural universe, and contains a long cultural connotation and historical accumulation of the Chinese nation.

"Instant Lounge" was a feature on The Cooper Union Website

The group challenged itself to design environmentally-conscious, instant furniture for public spaces that can be configured for the immediate needs of a space at any time of day. Using a cable machine and thick, soft rope, UEO devised a system that generates numerous furniture configurations, each of which can be retracted and replaced when another configuration is desired. This highly original design offers flexible use through minimal means and modest materials.

"Instant Lounge"  was announced as part of ShenZhen Biennale in ArchDaily

               Instant Lounge, invented by UEO, will be exhibited on the 2019-2020 Shenzhen Biennale. Instant Lounge is a site-specific room-size retractable 3D printer that makes temporary furniture in real-time. The exhibition will be in Shenzhen Futian High Speed railway station from December 21- March 21.

              In the urban context, the flux of people constantly redefines public space throughout the day. How can digital fabrication address this impermanence? What if public space could identify the sitting and lounging needs of pedestrians throughout the day to provide instant furniture? A train station platform or an airport terminal, for example, can be empty during rush hours to allow for free-flowing human traffic. However, it should be filled with seating during delays, provide adequate furnishings for conversations and meals in the evening, and lounging beds for overnight connections. “Instant lounge” can formally engage these daily scenarios without waste.

Instabilities and Potentialities

March 8.2019

Form matter was mentioned in the book of Instabilities and Potentialities. 

Now that information technologies are fully embedded into the design studio, Instabilities and Potentialities explores our post-digital culture to better understand its impact on theoretical discourse and design processes in architecture. The role of digital technologies and its ever-increasing infusion of information into the design process entails three main shifts in the way we approach architecture: its movement from an abstracted mode of codification to the formation of its image, the emergence of the informed object as a statistical model rather than a fixed entity and the increasing porosity of the architectural discipline to other fields of knowledge. Instabilities and Potentialities aims to bridge theoretical and practical approaches in digital architecture.

"Instant Lounge" was featured as Today 's innovation on SPRING WISE on January 10. 

The printer is suspended from cables attached to the ceiling, and the set-up allows the machine to move across the entirety of the space, in order to create complex shapes. The biodegradable furniture is made from a single rope coiled into a variety of shapes and is designed to last for five years (the usual lifespan of public furniture). The rope is a continuous cotton tube filled with pebbles, seeds, dry fruit pits and other food waste, and so when it is no longer needed, can be composted. Instant Lounge is available until mid-March 2020.

都会には休む場所がない。目的地へ向かって足早に歩く人々を、いかに効率良く運ぶか。それを念頭に設計された電車のハブ駅のプラットフォームでは、ベンチすらも窮屈そうに並んでいる。たった数十年ほど前までは、人々が駅の床に新聞紙を敷いて夜行列車の発車を待っていたことなど、もはや想像もできない。今回紹介するユニークな作品は、そんな過去の都市の中にたしかに存在していた隙間を思い起こさせるような、有機的で柔軟な概念のプロダクトだ。

The participating architects and artists come from diverse cultural backgrounds and different career stages, i.e. established architects next to professionals whose works might be less known. What they have in common is their dedication to architecture in the broadest sense of their profession. The exhibition shows a vast spectrum of presentations (models, concepts, research outcomes, thoughts, dreams and ideas), placing classical architectural installations in dialogue with surprising artistic elements.

Architecture has been criticized for organizing reality from the top down: from urban planning to buildings, to people's lives in spaces that challenge conventional cultural values. However, the role of architecture as a questioner of reality and cultural stability has been replaced or structured by stronger capitalist parameters that also operate from the top down and inform reality through the manipulation of conservative values: from corporate interests. from real estate companies that define the silhouette of the neoliberal city, to the lives of people through media interfaces.

The model of the Telecommunication Center was part of the Toward Concrete Utopia exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art.  

Toward a Concrete Utopia explores themes of large-scale urbanization, technology in everyday life, consumerism, monuments and memorialization, and the global reach of Yugoslav architecture. The exhibition includes more than 400 drawings, models, photographs, and film reels from an array of municipal archives, family-held collections, and museums across the region, and features work by important architects including Bogdan Bogdanović, Juraj Neidhardt, Svetlana Kana Radević, Edvard Ravnikar, Vjenceslav Richter, and Milica Šterić. From the sculptural interior of the White Mosque in rural Bosnia, to the post-earthquake reconstruction of the city of Skopje based on Kenzo Tange’s Metabolist design, to the new town of New Belgrade, with its expressive large-scale housing blocks and civic buildings, the exhibition examines the unique range of forms and modes of production in Yugoslav architecture and its distinct yet multifaceted character.
