Steinmannli downtown

This summer, visitors to the Rockefeller Plaza in New York were in special company. Nine stone giants rose here amidst the skyscraper backdrop.


The creator of the sculpture group, called “human nature”, is the Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone, whom Dr. Lüchinger+Meyer was able to support as structural engineer of the sculptures weighing tons. In particular the planning of the connections of the individual stone blocks “from the vertex to the sole” and the foundation of the figures were among our tasks.
