Nathaniel and Margaret Owings Distinguished Alumni Memorial Professor in Architecture Mark Cruvellier's Structural Systems class examines the 3D structural systems that are used in buildings — both how they "work" in terms of their mechanical function and how they can be related to conceptual design ideas and form and space-making objectives. This exhibition features drawings and models constructed this semester.
