InConstruction: Peter Eisenman presents a model of the Pinerba Condominium, a housing project for Piazza Erba in Milano (2019). The Pinerba Condominium utilizes abstraction and a Milanese typology through different layered materials, constraints and internal functional requirements, and contrasts the notion that its form should come from the orthogonal lines of the surrounding streets, resulting in a curved structure with open spaces for its inhabitants.

InConstruction is an intimate exhibition series at Art Omi that focuses on architecture and design projects, by contemporary architects.

Peter Eisenman is an internationally recognized architect and educator whose award-winning large-scale housing and urban design projects, innovative facilities for educational institutions, and series of inventive private houses attest to a career of excellence in design. Eisenman holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cornell University, a Master of Science in Architecture degree from Columbia University, and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Cambridge University (U.K). Many of Eisenman Architects’ projects have received numerous design awards, including the Wexner Center for the Arts and Fine Arts at The Ohio State University, the Koizumi Sangyo Corporation headquarters in Tokyo, and the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin.
