    Andrew Witt has relatively recently started a new firm called Certain Measures, where he is continuing his investigations from his time at Gehry Technologies and his ongoing studies with students at the Harvard GSD. More on the engineering side of the building spectrum, the work that he displayed his lecture at the Knowlton School this past Wednesday featured advanced structures performing what were nothing less than feats.

     

    The new Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris features sails that cascade over the building hidden underneath. In the lecture, Andrew walked the audience through the impressive engineering that was required to allow this structure. These investigations into the capabilities of the materials presents itself in the studies that his classes do at Harvard. Balloons writhed and wriggled as the methods and techniques of fabrication altered.
