Introduction by:

Matthew Melnyk considers the role of the engineer in collaboration with architects. Melnyk discusses the SCI-Arc Gallery projects that he worked on, which he values for putting a “premium on exploring solutions rather than arriving at the right solution.” He discusses Dragonfly (2007) with Tom Wiscombe of Emergent, Voussoir Cloud (2008) with Lisa Iwamoto and Craig Scott, Live Wire (2008) with Dwayne Oyler and Jenny Wu, and If Not Now, When? (2009) with Eric Owen Moss.

Voussoir Cloud With Lisa Iwamoto Craig Scott And Eric Owen Moss

Eric Owen Moss leads a discussion with Lisa Iwamoto and Craig Scott about Voussoir Cloud, their installation in the SCI-Arc gallery. Engineering consultants Tom Reiner and Matthew Melnyk join a discussion of the structural aspects of the installation. The conversation touches on the properties of arches versus nets, precedents such as Antoni Gaudi and Frei Otto, as well as the materiality of the piece and the digital fabrication tools employed in its execution.
