Eladio Dieste: A Principled Builder

May 25 – August 1, 2011

This exhibition explored the work of one of the lesser-known geniuses of 20th Century architecture, Eladio Dieste. Trained as an engineer he is known for his mastery of “reinforced masonry." Dieste invented appropriate structural types that he exploited with daring. This exhibition was curated by Stanford Anderson, Professor of Architecture at MIT.

Support for the Minneapolis showing of this exhibition was provided by the Minnesota Masonry Education Fund in the College of Design and The Masonry Society for the 11th North American Masonry Conference.
