James Sutherland History Lecture 2019: Pier Luigi Nervi


Thomas Leslie, Morrill Professor in Architecture at Iowa State, discusses the life and work of Pier Luigi Nervi.

Pier Luigi Nervi was hailed as a master of structural engineering and architectural form; a "poet in concrete".

Using original drawing from the Nervi archives, digital reconstructions of key works, and Nervi's own written words, this presentation explores Nervi's aesthetic philosophy.

The lecture shows how he negotiated structural and fabricational 'truths' to create works that celebrated the constraints that he practiced within.
