TALL BUILDINGS LECTURES: Guy Nordenson
Guy Nordenson, a professor of architecture at Princeton, is interviewed by Alex Beers '11 and Michaela Glaser '11.
Guy Nordenson and Associates collaborates with architects in the design process of complex and challenging projects. Recent projects include the World Trade Center Memorial Slurry Wall Bracing Structure in New York with Davis Brody Bond and Simpson Gumpertz & Heger and the design of the 7 Stems Broadcast Tower in New York with Henry N Cobb/Pei Cobb Freed & Partners.
This collection of talks on skyscrapers includes interviews with three giants in the field of structural engineering -- Bill Baker, Leslie Robertson, and Guy Nordenson -- as well as a lecture by David Billington on Fazlur Khan. The experts hold forth a wide range of subjects, from design inspiration to sustainability to cultural differences in building.
These talks were sponsored by Princeton's department of civil and environmental engineering.
