This exhibition, curated by Price & Myers partner Tim Lucas, will feature drawings, models, and images that explain the creative value of engineering: in particular, how a structure can look exciting without being complicated to make and build, and can therefore be surprisingly economic.
Four projects will demonstrate how principles of geometry, engineering, materials and manufacturing methods have been used to go from simple base components to intricate and apparently complex three dimensional forms.
Price & Myers are the designers of a new Ductal staircase for The Building Centre that is due for completion late 2009. The staircase, which will be featured in the exhibition, is the first structural use of Ductal in the United Kingdom.
