2013 Design Biennial Boston, BSA Space, Helix Stair

Envisioned and developed by Matter Design for the third Design Biennial Boston, Helix is a half-scale, unreinforced, custom-fabricated, concrete spiral staircase.  SGH collaborated with Matter Design on material analysis, structural design and detailing, casting and curing, and erection at BSA Space.  By combining our materials analysis, laboratory, and structural engineering services, SGH helped Matter Design accomplish this complex installation of unreinforced concrete.
