Opening on January 13, 2011 at The ICA Philadelphia, Anne Tyng: Inhabiting Geometry.
itect and theorist Anne Tyng has designed a gallery-scale model that embodies her thinking about geometry over the last half century. This installation—built largely from Luan plywood—realizes the ambition of all her work: to inhabit geometry. Since the 1950s, 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.
The exhibition takes visitors through five human scale installations by the Chinese-b0rn Tyng. The work will remain on site through March 20, 2011.
