Felix Candela exhibition at Princeton

Félix Candela: Engineer, Builder, Structural Artist is a pioneering exhibition project produced through the collaboration of the Princeton University Art Museum and the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering.

Recognized as one of the great structural artists of the twentieth century, Spanish-born Felix Candela (1910-1997) designed and built innovative thin shell concrete roof structures using the hyperbolic paraboloid geometric form. The exhibition examines Candela's process of design and construction through several of his most significant works.

Students used Rhino to reproduce designs by the architect Felix Candela. The models were fabricated on Zcorp printers.
