Description

To open its Frontiers of Architecture series, Denmark's Louisiana Museum of Modern Art chose the engineer, innovative thinker and writer Cecil Balmond, honoring him with an exhibition of projects past, present and future. This exhibition catalogue, covered in a clear vinyl slipcase, includes loose, abstract sketches, installation photographs and digital renderings of his various projects--exposing Balmond's varied sources of inspiration, thoughts, working methods and processes. For example, there is a section on his collaboration with the artist Anish Kapoor that documents the 2002 installation of a giant red gramophone-shaped fabric tube at Tate Modern in London. With his unconventional approach to structural engineering, Balmond is an indispensable sparring partner for some of the most challenging and innovative architects of our day, including Toyo Ito, Rem Koolhaas, Alvaro Siza and Daniel Libeskind.
