The Lightfall and the Symbolic Function of the Hyperbolic Paraboloid Surface

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The paper discusses the symbolic function of the hyperbolic paraboloid surface in Preston Scott Cohen’s design of the Lightfall at Tel Aviv Museum of Art and its precedents. While analysing several examples of the use of the hyperbolic paraboloid surface in architecture, the paper proposes three modes of symbolic use of the surface: operative, demonstrative and figurative.
