Artist/Architect Allan Wexler has been a huge influence and inspiration to WildWood for sometime, so much so I recently used his work to illustrate and inspire my students for an assignment I gave them. His work explores the routines and rituals of our everyday lives and how they relate to the built environment.

As said in his statement, “The works isolate, elevate, and monumentalize our daily rituals; dining, sleeping, bathing. And they, in turn, become mechanism that activate ritual, ceremony, and movement, turning these ordinary activities into theater.”
