Institute of Contemporary Art - Anne Tyne: Inhabiting Geometry Exhibition, Other

Visionary architect and theorist Anne Tyng has designed a gallery-scale model that embodies her thinking about geometry over the last half century. This installation—built largely from Luan plywood—realizes the ambition of all her work: to inhabit geometry. Since the 1950s, when she worked closely with Louis I. Kahn and independently pioneered habitable space-frame architecture, Tyng has applied natural and numeric systems to built forms on all scales, from urban plans to domestic spaces.

Collaboration with Srdjan Jovanovic Weiss

TOGS 3- Temporary Outdoor Gallery Space Competition, Honorable Mention

PARKT:
The intention of PARKT is to mediate three conflicting speeds and modes of engagement between the human element, art, and vehicle traffic. Installed in a planted pedestrian median in a high traffic intersection of downtown Austin, the installation works with multiple site conditions simultaneously - a small park, the street, and a temporary gallery space.
Using slices of multiple programs that speak to the various scales and speeds of interaction with the installation, multiple gallery arrangements are possible. The final PARKT configuration has the most performative interior/exterior because the layout allows for multiple mediums of art (sculpture, projection, artifact mounting), elements of interaction and play with the exterior shell, and the most visibility from the street by passing vehicles.
