Sigrid Adriaenssens and Axel Kilian will give an informal talk on "form finding" in the context of architectural shell structures at a book launch and reception May 30 at 4 p.m. in Princeton, N.J.
The reception, which is free and open to the public, will feature models of shell structures made by Princeton students and will be held in the outdoor courtyard of the Engineering Quadrangle on the Princeton University campus.
The Engineering Quadrangle Courtyard is one of Princeton's best-kept secrets. It is home to several important pieces of sculpture, including "Spheric Theme" by Naum Gabo
. To access the courtyard, visitors are advised to follow signs for the reception upon entering the Engineering Quadrangle (aka the "EQuad") from either of the building's two main entrances on Olden Street. Map here
In the event of rain, the event will move to the EQuad Cafe.
