Abstract:

You are cordially invited to the opening of the exhibition “German Shells: Efficiency in Form” on Friday, May 24th at 4:30 PM in the lobby of the Engineering Library in the Friend Center.

The 3D scale models of significant 20th and 21st century German shells displayed in this exhibition were made by students in the CEE463: A Social and Multi-dimensional Exploration of Structures class in Fall 2012. Through the juxtaposition of models , photographs and explanatory panels that illustrate the relationship between forces and form, you will experience the process of German innovative shell design and construction.
