The Diplothopter Installation

In 2004 we, among a handful of Northwest architects, were asked by graduating students of the UBC School of Architecture to participate in a gallery show that would present how we’ve managed to sustain a passionate and inquiring practice in the ‘real’ world of architecture. We decided to share our joy of making things. We invited students to assist in the envisioning and building of an invention in the front hall of the Emily Carr Institute in Vancouver, BC. Amidst traversing students and faculty we worked together to discover, built and install the “Diplothopter.”
