Reading Structures: 39 Projects and Built Works
Guy Nordenson and Associates is pleased to announce the launch of Reading Structures: 39 Projects and Built Works by Guy Nordenson. A collection of thirty-nine structures, both built and unbuilt, this monograph reveals Nordenson's unique contributions to a progressive, collaborative design process, as both engineer and designer. The structures in this volume span twenty-eight years, from his early work with Paul Weidlinger, to his formation of the New York office of Ove Arup & Partners, through the first 13 years since the 1998 establishment of his current independent practice, Guy Nordenson and Associates.
The volume is organized around three thematic sections: Engineering Ephemera, Simply Supported, and Building History. It includes Nordenson’s essays on these themes, as well as his individual project descriptions chronicling the vision and challenges of each. Barry Bergdoll, architectural historian, curator, and critic, provides an introduction.
