Wentworth Architecture Review asks Nader and NADAAA’s Matthew Waxman about the exploratory design process of Catenary Compression and testing to failure. Copies available here.

“Something so remarkable about this project is that it was a failure — a successful failure. It didn’t work as we had expected, but it worked in a way requiring us to ask new questions about how it works. The moment during the process where there was a collapse, prior to completion, was an incredible moment because it pressured all of us on the team to come up with a solution to bring the project forward, but also not shatter it along the way.” – MW
