Eugène Viollet-le-Duc

This is Eugène Viollet-le-Duc Project for a Concert Hall 1864. I like this drawing because at the time it was a design that was not in reach. In his theoretical drawing this construction was to have arcs and polygons formed by iron works columns. These formations were only created on paper because at the time it was difficult to create. This idea was ahead of his time which shows his brilliance. I like how it shows the evolution of the arc in structural design. It is a very intricate design which makes me like it even more because the detail shows how the design works as a space.
