ANNE TYNG INHABITING GEOMETRY PDF

Domus Domus. Inhabiting Geometry The visionary architect and theorist Anne Tyng has designed a gallery-scale model that embodies her thinking about geometry over the last half century. The installation at ICA Philadelphia — built largely from Luan plywood — realizes the ambition of all Anne Tyng's 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. A tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, icosahedron, and dodecahedron, each is built to human scale and can be entered, explored, comprehended.

Anne Tyng : Inhabiting Geometry. Anne Griswold Tyng , Ingrid Schaffner. Anne Tyng born explores the potentials of geometry through her architectural and teaching practices. Since the s, when she worked closely with Louis Kahn and independently pioneered space-frame construction, Tyng has applied natural and numeric systems to built forms on all scales, from urban plans to domestic spaces.

She believes that geometry is a metaphor for thought and the creative process--as a spatial demonstration of how the mind generates associations through the combination of pattern and chance. This volume documents a new project by the visionary architect and theorist. Commissioned by the Institute of Contemporary Art Philadelphia, Tyng has created an installation-scale model that realizes the ambition of all of her work: to inhabit geometry.

Exploring her life-long fascination with the Platonic solids, the book also features related models and documentation of past projects, including Tyng and Kahn's never-built design for City Tower in Philadelphia Ingrid Schaffner. Alicia Imperiale , Srdjan Jovanovic Weiss. Architectural Archives.

Anne Tyng: Inhabiting Geometry

Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians 1 March ; 71 1 : — Bilateral man evolved from numberless hierarchies of cycles of form … goes through the cycle again. The exhibition Anne Tyng: Inhabiting Geometry was powered by a gratifying representation of Tyng's progress toward this article. Simultaneously, an episode in the institutional history of its Chicago venue was also displayed Figures 1 , 2. Since Tyng wrote this text as the outcome of a fellowship that she received in from the Graham Foundation, twenty-two illustrated pages of Tyng's fellowship application constituted the first section of the exhibit on display. They provide clear evidence of her curiosity and the conceptual rigor in her treatment of advanced geometry.

This exhibition presents the work of the visionary architect and theorist Anne Tyng. 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.

This Friday, April 15, will see the opening of Inhabiting Geometry , a remarkable exhibition of work by visionary architect and theorist Anne Tyng, at Chicago's Graham Foundation. The show chronicles Tyng's philosophy and practice through "a selection of drawings, models, and other documentation of past projects, including: City Tower with Kahn, ; Urban Hierarchy ; and the Four-Poster House The title of the exhibition and her works belie the understated beauty of their execution, which demonstrate the expressive power of order and geometry. Tyng's unique command of form is matched by her raw intellect; thus, she elegantly articulates her vision in the models seen here. It's fascinating stuff, and the images alone have piqued my interest in Tyng's theories, which cover topics from Jungian cycles to the cosmos. Tyng b. She spent nearly three decades collaborating with Louis Kahn before shifting her focus to research at the University of Pennsylvania in the late 60's.
