Stone Wall Stand In

Design With Company – Stewart Hicks, Allison Newmeyer

Plaza del Revellín – Concéntrico 09

The ‘Stone Wall Stand In’ is an active billboard, of sorts, that re – represents and reframes the city of Logroño. Like a 1:1 paper cut – out souvenir, the giant drawing vivifies the history and materiality of the Plaza de Revellin. It features a thin leaning wall engraved with the outlines of the stones set within the thick ancient medieval wall behind it in order to unveil a new realm in the city. Slip behind the drawing to discover places to hide, explore, or ju st to lounge and chat with others. Old and new collide with the real and representational to generate sites of playful opportunities for engagement and a unique perspective on the historic surroundings.

Design With Company

Design With Company (Dw/Co) is a design adventure begun by Stewart Hicks and Allison Newmeyer. From the home base of Chicago, they collaborate — as the name implies — with allied people and institutions to design a more richly engaging environment. This takes the form of textual and visual stories, speculative urban scenarios, installations and small-scale interactive constructions. The work has been featured in exhibitions such as the Chicago Architecture Biennial and Design Miami, as well as at the V&A and Tate Modern in London. Writings can be found in the co-authored book Misguided Tactics for Propriety Calibration (Graham Foundation, 2015), as well as essays in MONU magazine, the AIA journal Manifest, Log, bracket, and the guest-edited issue of MAS Context on the topic of character in architecture.

Stewart Hicks is an Associate Professor and Associate Dean at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He leads design studios throughout the curriculum and teaches history/theory lecture courses. Prior to UIC, he taught at the University of Michigan and the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and held the Hyde Chair of Excellence at the University of Nebraska and masterclass teaching fellowship at Lawrence Technological University. He also runs the popular youtube channel ‘Architecture with Stewart’ with around 300,000 subscribers and over 24 million views.

Allison Newmyer a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at chicago.
