More About the Author
Crossover explores this realm navigating Balmond's most recent solo work including his bridges Weave at UPenn and Pedro e Ines in Portugal, a masterplan for Battersea and Star of Caledonia, an art sculpture for Scotland. It also features his collaborative projects: CCTV, Taichung Opera House, the Serpentine Pavilions, Orbit, Temenos and Marysas. An exploration in the overlap zone between art and science, Hans Ulrich Obrist, who has penned the preface for Crossover, describes Balmond's books as his 'laboratory,' a toolbox for design practitioners.
Balmond currently holds the Paul Philippe Cret Chair at Penn Design as Professor of Architecture where he is also the founder of the Non-Linear Systems Organization (NSO), a material and structural research unit at University of Pennsylvania. He has also been Kenzo Tange Professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Architecture, Saarinen Professor at Yale University School of Architecture and Visiting Fellow at the London School of Economics. Balmond's awards include the 2002 Japanese Gengo Matsui prize for the Serpentine Gallery pavilion he designed with Toyo Ito, which was based on an algorithm created by Balmond, the RIBA Charles Jencks Award for Theory in Practice in 2003 and the Sir Banister Fletcher Prize for his book, informal in 2005.
