Anne Tyng: Inhabiting Geometry

Published by Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania/Graham Foundation
Edited and introduction by Ingrid Schaffner. Text by Srdjan Jovanovic Weiss, Jenny Sabin, Alicia Imperiale. Contributions by Claudia Gould, Sarah Herda, William Whitaker, Ingrid Schaffner.

Anne Tyng (born 1920) explores the potentials of geometry through her architectural and teaching practices. Since the 1950s, when she worked closely with Louis Kahn and independently pioneered space-frame construction, Tyng has applied natural and numeric systems to built forms on all scales, from urban plans to domestic spaces. She believes that geometry is a metaphor for thought and the creative process--as a spatial demonstration of how the mind generates associations through the combination of pattern and chance. This volume documents a new project by the visionary architect and theorist. Commissioned by the Institute of Contemporary Art Philadelphia, Tyng has created an installation-scale model that realizes the ambition of all of her work: to inhabit geometry. Exploring her life-long fascination with the Platonic solids, the book also features related models and documentation of past projects, including Tyng and Kahn's never-built design for City Tower in Philadelphia (1952-1956).
