npr piece on guastavino…

starring Construction History guru John Ochsendorf.  The Guastavino exhibit that formed the centerpiece for the CHSA conference in Boston last Fall is now at the National Building Museum, and he gives a good, albeit brief, tour of some highlights.  The exhibit is spectacular, with original drawings, tile samples, and digitally fabricated reconstructions that show how the Guastavino’s vaults were constructed.  Absolutely fascinating, even to a steel and concrete guy like me,  Well worth checking out both the story and, if you’re near D.C., the exhibit, which runs through 20 January 2014.
