We are offering A SET OF FIVE (5) prints, impeccably reproduced from Paolo Soleri’s original sketches depicting a variety of Soleri bridges drawn in 1970s. These limited edition prints are made in 2012.
In many of the bridge designs, Soleri tries to integrate functional spaces into the structural elements of the bridge. The bridge becomes more than just an instrument which links places together. It is itself a habitable place where people gather and live.
Soleri’s bridges are functional objects of art and engineering which do not need a context to be understood or appreciated. For Soleri, the bridge represents “an ideal subject for the imaginative mind if the mind accepts the discipline that gravity and matter impose.”
