A young architect shows off 3-D printing in his vibrant retro digs.

Add a comment

Wil Marquez has a consulting company, W/Purpose, that tackles urban-design issues (and creates beautiful things, like Tomlinson Tap’s bar) by trading Indy’s cinderblock cityscape for fetching, affordable housing developments and bright, artful bus stops. Marquez practices the inventive style he preaches at his cool pad in Devington.

Art
Marquez found this Roy Lichtenstein vinyl graphic at a gift shop in Argentina.

Wall Print
He collaborated with UNLV professor Shai Yeshayahu and Southern Illinois University student Ronny Metzger to create the 3-D blocks for this textural graphic of his company’s logo. Marquez and Yeshayahu will be teaching the printing technique at Marquez’s new co-working space, Design Bank, on the northeast side.
