ESKYIU, a multi-disciplinary architecture studio actively integrating culture, community, art and technology is led by Founding Partners Eric Schuldenfrei and Marisa Yiu. They explore how architecture intersects with transformative cultural landscapes, education and social sustainability. They were awarded the ‘Architectural League Prize', Perspective's ‘40 under 40' and curated the 2009 Hong Kong & Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/ Architecture. They have exhibited widely, with works including ‘Urban Pastoral' for the 2008 Venice Biennale; ‘Human Motor: Narratives from the Assembly Line' in Ljubljana; Chinatown WORK, an interactive public arts project commissioned by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council; and ‘Nutritious: an aeroponic facade' at the Architectural Association in London. Both have lectured internationally at Harvard's AsiaGSD conference, TEDx, V&A museum, the Asia Society to universities from Nanjing, Finland to Cambridge. Recently they published a book entitled INSTANT CULTURE: Architecture and Urbanism as a Collective Process.
The summer benefit architecture drawing auction includes work newly commissioned by Storefront for Art & Architecture for the Aesthetic/Anasthetic exhibition on display until July 28, 2012. Each drawing depicts the Storefront Gallery space at 97 Kenmare, from the perspectives of a diverse group of emerging and established architects worldwide. The drawings reveal a different aspect of the space and are representative of the generative properties of the architect's drawing. All proceeds will support Storefront's exhibitions and programs.
