wHY at Work: Workshop in Design and Creativity

wHY Architecture (Courtesy of the University of Southern California)Yo-ichiro Hakomori, founding partner at wHY Architecture and Design, will lecture this Wednesday September 12th in Harris Hall, adjacent to the USC School of Architecture. Along with founding partner Kulapat Yantrasast, and partner Richard Stoner, wHY Architecture completed the Grand Rapids Art Museum, the first LEED gold certified museum in the world in 2007. With their knowledge and passion for “invisible green” and art, wHY Architecture have since received numerous commissions for other art related projects throughout the country including the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky; the Tyler Museum of Art in Tyler, Texas; gallery/exhibit design at the Harvard Art Museums in Cambridge, Massachusetts and at the Art Institute of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois; L&M Arts in Venice, California; Royal T Gallery and Café in Culver City, California; and the Perry Rubenstein Gallery in West Hollywood, California.  

Grand Rapids Art Museum (Courtesy of wHY Architecture)wHY Architecture is also working on designs for Pomona College Studio Art Hall, the Interpretive Green Bridge (Art Bridge) at the Great Wall of Los Angeles, and a number of single-family residences in Los Angeles and Thailand.
Hakomori has also taught at Cal Poly Pomona College of Environmental Design, the USC School of Architecture, and most recently was a visiting adjunct professor at the School of Architecture and Allied Arts at the University of Oregon. Prior to starting wHY Architecture, Hakomori worked for several notable Los Angeles firms including Koning Eizenberg Architecture, De Bretteville and Polyzoides, and Franklin D. Israel Design Associates. 
The lecture begins at 6:00 and is free and open to the public.  No reservations are required.  Parking is available on campus at Gate 1 off Exposition Blvd.
