Hello. How are you? This is a bead devoted to architectural design principles, architects, movements, and outstanding home or building design. Feel free to post articles, interviews, talks, documentaries and clips. A few architects whose works I appreciate: Kurosawa Kisho, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, Antti Lovag, Paolo Soleri (who designed Arcosanti), Antoni Gaudi, Paul Revere Williams, Le Corbusier, Ant Farm and Zaha Hadid.

Pier Luigi Nervi - L'architettura e la sua struttura - Tullia Iori
Pamela Talese

Pier Luigi Nervi

The structural engineer and architect Pier Luigi Nervi, gave buildings curves and created corbel vaults from reinforced concrete that had the intricacy of honey combs . A recent photo of Pope Francis in Paul VI Audience Hall is just one example of his geometric palazzi -many of which comprised prefabricated pieces, the pattern of which were often revealed by their seams though, on occasion, unified by a smooth skimming of cement.
 
Pier Luigi Nervi worked mostly in Italy but also had commissions internationally. Here is New York City we can enjoy, though not easily, his George Washington Bridge Bus Station. Urban grit notwithstanding, Nervi's innovations ennobled this humble material and raised the re-bar!

This is another rocking bead, @Erika! My only frustration is that I can't find better video for this remarkable designer.
