Morphosis Exhibit

Morphosis Exhibit at Centre Pompidou

From March through July of 2006, a sweeping exhibit entitled "Continuities of the Incomplete" was displayed at the acclaimed Centre Pompidou in Paris, France. Morphosis asked Zahner to produce the complex metal and glass floor as an exportable aluminum and glass system. The design entails an inclining floor which encases a series of models, videos, and the entire thought-process of the architects at Morphosis and it's founder, Thom Mayne.

The structural raised floor begins at ground level and gradually raises to two feet. The structure was engineered to withstand the hundreds of people who would traffic the show.

The custom engineered fin structure was designed and produced by a small group of engineers, and the entire floor was shipped to France where it was installed, without ever pre-assembling it in our Kansas City facility. There in france, the same engineers who designed the structure also erected it, and the aluminum floor came together seamlessly.

Zahner recently worked with Morphosis to produce the stainless roof and wall panels on the Eugene Federal Courthouse in Oregon as well as the custom perforated stainless steel curtain-wall on the New Cooper Union Academic Building at 41 Cooper Square in New York City.
