Geoffrey von Oeyen Design featured in Architect Magazine

 

USC Architecture faculty Geoffrey von Oeyen and his firm Geoffrey von Oeyen Design were recently profiled in Architect Magazine. Professor von Oeyen established his practice in 2012 and has taken on a range of projects from residential projects to an educational lab to retail space. Von Oeyen’s particular interest lies at the intersection of sailing and architecture, which led to “Performative Composites: Sailing Architecture,” an exhibit, workshop, and forum at USC in fall 2014 organized by von Oeyen. The event explored how sailing technology could allow designers to reconsider spatial, formal, and environmental forces in architecture in new ways.

 

“By looking at the way naval design leverages environmental forces like wind and water to deal with external forces—human occupation, space, and mechanical systems—while also creating elegant structures that are smarter, lighter, and stronger, von Oeyen is able to create innovative designs that have the potential to steer architecture through uncharted waters.”
