Ricardo Regazzoni has developed 1 featured project with Zahner. Architects come to Zahner for the company’s commitment to developing the designer’s aesthetic to completion. Zahner worked with Ricardo Regazzoni to develop their design into custom architectural systems, featured below.
Forty reflective spiraling forms appear to float above the atrium at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Services in the capital city of Doha, Qatar. Completed in 2012, this project marks the fourth significant work produced by Zahner in the city, and the second produced under the vision of architects Legorreta + Legorreta who designed the Georgetown University at Doha as well as the HBKU Doha University Student Center.The artwork at the heart of Georgetown University was conceived by sculptor Ricardo Regazzoni. The artwork was engineered by Zahner, fabricated in the Zahner shop, and installed by local installers in Doha under Zahner supervision. Each of the forms measures 38’ long, and the artwork fills an area of 82’ x 131’ over the open atrium.Collaboration between Zahner and Regazzoni is a match of of kindred philosophies. While Regazzoni works to transform architectural columns and archways into artistic expression, Zahner works to bring architecture into the realm of art. This alignment of sensibilities between the artist and fabricator gave this project a strong sense of direction.
