Victoria and Albert and Ove

This Friday we’re highlighting Engineering the World: Ove Arup and the Philosophy of Total Design, a retrospective open now at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

1. Metropolis Magazine describes Arup’s founder as “one of the 20th century’s preeminent personalities at the intersection of architecture and engineering.”

2. Interior Design describes the works presented in the exhibition, which range from design drawings to prototypes and building parts.

3. Fast Company illuminates Ove’s instrumental role in bringing engineers out of the shadows of the buildings they helped create.

4. The Evening Standard profiles the poet, doodler, and office joker who helped pull engineering out of the Victorian age.

5. Dezeen contends that the new exhibit will allow spectators to see iconic buildings like the Sydney Opera House and the Centre Pompidou with fresh eyes.
