About Eladio Dieste
From the mid 1940s, Eladio Dieste designed and built increasingly ambitious and innovative structures in reinforced ceramics. His work was grounded on a solid understanding and sensitive use of the nature of the material itself and of laminar statics. Some of these same principles are thought to be valid to apply today to different material and technologic ways to effectively and elegantly covering long spans.
