Sasaki Mutsuro: Morphogenesis of Flux Structure
Monday, September 19, 2016, 6:30 - 6:30pm
Add to Calendar
This event, held in conjunction with an exhibition of Sasaki's work in the 3rd Floor Hallway Gallery, is only open to current Cooper Union students, faculty, and staff.
Mutsuro Sasaki is an expert of shell structures and a pioneer in the field of computational morphogenesis in structural engineering. His research focuses on the development of design techniques using structural optimizations and form findings based on the mathematical principle of structural mechanics. He has developed the sensitivity analysis method for free-curved shell structures that defines optimum structural solutions within complex design criteria. His research-based practice extends the analytical works of Antonio Gaudi, Heinz Isler, and Frei Otto into the field of computational designs that has helped shape the contemporary architectural scene in Japan and abroad.
Lecture in Room 215F.
