Konrad Wachsmann

Between September 2005 and January 2006 I pursued my interest in the works of Konrad Wachsmann, a visionary German-American architect. As Research Assistant to An Te Liu, an artist and associate professor in the University of Toronto Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design , I helped develop the ideas that led to a successful grant from the Canada Council for a forthcoming project entitled This Was the Future: The Vision of Konrad Wachsmann. Under the direction of David Lieberman and Michael Propokow, both faculty members at AL&D, I created two documents about Wachsmann's work. An excerpt from the short manuscript Konrad Wachsmann's USAF Space Frame Proposal and the proposal for the longer paper Universal Dreams: Konrad Wachsmann's USAF Space Frame are shown below.
