Archimedes of Syracuse
Omaha, NE United States | 2008
Ryan Carlson, an art student at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, designed these sculptures and specified hot-dip galvanizing because he wanted to provide durability and make them aesthetically appealing. The art was commissioned with the intent to later sell the pieces.
Corrosion protection and durability were key...
With no idea where the pieces would be housed in the future, corrosion protection and durability were key in his design. However, because the pieces are intended to be art, visual appeal was also important, and Mr Carlson believed hot-dip galvanized steel was the only coating to accomplish both goals.
