ANNE TYNG INHABITING GEOMETRY PDF

Anne Tyng: Inhabiting Geometry About Visionary architect and theorist Anne Tyng has designed a gallery-scale model that embodies her thinking about geometry over the last half century. This installation—built largely from Luan plywood—realizes the ambition of all her work: to inhabit geometry. Since the s, when she worked closely with Louis I. Kahn and independently pioneered habitable space-frame architecture, Tyng has applied natural and numeric systems to built forms on all scales, from urban plans to domestic spaces. Comprising a tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, icosahedron, and dodecahedron, each space is built to human scale and can be entered, explored, and comprehended. For optimum effect, visitors are invited to look through these open structures at the massive spiral that lifts from the wall and rotates towards the ceiling.

Anne Tyng: Inhabiting Geometry About Visionary architect and theorist Anne Tyng has designed a gallery-scale model that embodies her thinking about geometry over the last half century.

This installation—built largely from Luan plywood—realizes the ambition of all her work: to inhabit geometry. Since the s, when she worked closely with Louis I. Kahn and independently pioneered habitable space-frame architecture, Tyng has applied natural and numeric systems to built forms on all scales, from urban plans to domestic spaces.

Comprising a tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, icosahedron, and dodecahedron, each space is built to human scale and can be entered, explored, and comprehended. For optimum effect, visitors are invited to look through these open structures at the massive spiral that lifts from the wall and rotates towards the ceiling. This is how Tyng sees the world and derives her own built forms, through the symmetries, orders, and dynamic progressions by which one form in geometry becomes another.

The exhibition also features a selection of drawings, models, and other documentation of past projects, including: City Tower with Kahn, ; Urban Hierarchy circa ; and the Four-Poster House Throughout, geometry is both rational and expressive, as much a means of contemplation as of calculation and construction.

Starting in , she worked closely with Louis I. Kahn and was instrumental in the design of some of his iconic early projects, including the Trenton bath house and the Yale University Art Gallery. After , she focused her attention on research, earning a doctoral degree from the University of Pennsylvania, where she later taught for almost thirty years. Anne Tyng: Inhabiting Geometry,

Anne Tyng, an Architect Living in Geometry

Since the s, when she worked closely with Louis I. Kahn and independently pioneered habitable space-frame architecture, Tyng has applied natural and numeric systems to built forms on all scales, from urban plans to domestic spaces. This exhibition features room size models of the five platonic solids the tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron. Identified in ancient times, the platonic solids are the only regular equilateral and equiangular polyhedra. These forms can be found in nature, such as in the structure of crystals. Demonstrating this vision at work is a selection of drawings, models, and other documentation of past projects, including: City Tower with Kahn, ; Urban Hierarchy ; and the Four-Poster House
