Cameron Wu's independent practice engages with formal analysis and on-going research and design with developable and ruled surface geometries. His inquiry into the organizational principles latent in geometric form has served as a catalyst for re-introducing historical precedent into the contemporary discourse through digital media and fabrication techniques. Drawings and animated analyses of plans of Baroque churches were recently exhibited in a collection entitled “Baroque Machinations” in the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial. Most recently, he guest edited a special section of Log 43, The Issue of Geometry, which addresses current trends and motivations of geometric form in architecture today, an interest that informs both his design work and pedagogy.
Previously, Wu was Associate Professor of Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design. His work and writing have been featured in Log, AA Files, PLOT, Architectural Record, and Bauwelt, and exhibited at MoMA, Storefront for Art and Architecture, and SFMoMA. In 2012, he was a finalist for the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program with his submission "Coney Inland." Wu has practiced in the offices of Preston Scott Cohen Inc., MSME Architects, and James Carpenter Design Associates. Independently, he has built residential projects in both the U.S. and abroad. He has lectured and participated in symposia at various institutions including Columbia, GSD, MIT, UCLA, and the University of Lisbon.
Wu received his B.S.E. in Architecture and Civil Engineering from Princeton University and his Master in Architecture degree from Harvard Graduate School of Design.
