ENGINEERING THE WORLD OVE ARUP AND THE PHILOSOPHY OF TOTAL DESIGN
This is the title of the exhibition that opened in London in mid-June at the Porter Galleries of London’s famous Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A for the British) and will close on 6 November.
Prokoss Mobilrot’s export team, in close collaboration with London-based architecture firm Dvik-Kahlen, succeeded in creating the backbone of the entire exhibition, which celebrates the professional life of English engineer Ove Arup (1895-1988), considered the greatest engineer of the 20th century in the field of civil and structural engineering, in a comprehensive retrospective.
The structure designed and built by Prokoss Mobilrot is a quadrilateral system of multi-storey shelving units approximately 22 metres long by 13 metres wide and 6.5 metres high with the elements of the well-known Procoss interlocking system, which makes an elegant supporting structure for a series of over 150 works including prototypes, drawings, models, archive material and films of almost one hundred years of creativity in the field of engineering and architecture.
The carefully designed Mobilrot structure “wraps around” Ove Arup’s cleverly lit works and supports them, creating a special atmosphere for the visitor, who is immersed in a fascinating and highly engaging journey of exploration and knowledge.
