Living in the Brownfield - Love letter to plywood

Love letter to plywood. By Tom Sachs. Directed by Van Neistat, 2012.

Spillman was shortlisted for the Kansas State University College of Architecture, Planning, and Design project and we've been fine tuning our message about the importance of material to our practice. Plywood has been a long time personal favorite material for me, and I thought this video communicated some essentials. Congrats to the team and good luck at the interview.

If you want to see more, or learn more about the artist Tom Sachs, I recommend starting at his website...I'll never forget the afternoon I came face to face with the Unite d'Habatation scale model realized in foamcore, dont' miss that one!


  1. Fantastic Video! I love plywood for structure and clarity of line, but for warmth and fluidity, solid wood still trumps the Queen.
