Remembering Erwin Hauer, master of architectural sculpture

Austrian-American sculptor Erwin Hauer passed away on December 22, 2017, aged 91. Born in 1926, in Vienna, he studied at the Rhode Island School of Design then was invited by Josef Albers to study at Yale University in 1956. Mixing modularity with a mathematical expressiveness, inspired by Henry Moore and the Constructivist sculptors Naum Gabo and Antoine Pevsner, Hauer cast his architectural sculptures from molds in concrete, gypsum and acrylic resin. His screens became emblematic of modernism.
