Maya Cochrane is interested in exploring the ephemeral and transitory aspects of daily life. These explorations take the form of architecture, photo documentation, instillation, collaborative work, writing, drawing and modeling.
Formally trained in Architecture at the University of Manitoba followed by the Bartlett School of Architecture, Maya’s philosophy is to operate between the thresholds of Architecture, Art, Instillation, Interaction & Design.
Currently 2013) Maya is studying her Part 3 Professional Studies at UCL, London. I am learning all about managing the construction process, project management, contract & working with clients.
In September 2012, Maya was a resident at I-Park collaborating with members from the Open City, Chile and other resident musicians to design and develop ideas around ephemeral architecture.
November 2011, Maya ran a workshop called Cohabitable Architecture. This workshop is in collaboration with Animal Estates and will be held at ARUP. Over the past year I have completed two installations with Pavegen Systems. One was an eco-hut for bestial with an interactive dance floor and the other was the installation of their paving slabs in a school in Kent. For more information check out Pavegen.
In 2010 an artistic collaboration with onedotzero, explored the topic of Utopia. Follow PIE at piedotzero.wordpress.com to find out more about this collaboration.
