Description

In this issue of ‘a+u’, collaborations between artists and engineers are presented in twenty diverse works ranging from 60-year old project plans from Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Richard Serra’s tallest sculpture, monumental sculptures of steel and concrete by Pablo Picasso, and Janet Echelman’s net installations. These projects present engineering as an artistic and aesthetic discipline, liberated from conventional architectural constraints. Dialogues with artists, sketches, and reflections highlight the crossovers between engineering and art. This volume is guest edited by Guy Nordenson, with eight essays from contributors Mike Schlaich, Sigrid Adrianssens, and many more.
