About this artwork

Fred Koetter’s project illustrates an idea about how technologies from both past and present might exist in a single building. This experimental proposal took as its base the glass-and-steel curtain wall of Walter Gropius’s Tribune entry, which Koetter “deformed” and activated by applying a futuristic, pneumatic system to the frame.
