POETIC STRUCTURE: ART + ENGINEERING + ARCHITECTURE celebrates the fundamental artistic elements found in the design execution of engineering in architecture. Through a number of projects and installations by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) engineers and visual artists, including a previously unseen kinematic pavilion hovering above the landscape on the grounds of the historic Schindler House. This exhibition displays striking examples of how these disciplines, when integrated, demonstrate the similarities that exist between artistic and structural design.
Programming will accompany the exhibition run in the form of panel discussions with artists, SOM engineers, architects and community leaders; building tours; youth education programs; and panel discussions. All are among the on- and off-site events that will offer the public a deeper understanding of the intersections between art and engineering, and the impact the work has on the built environment.
