    #9 Jerry, I thank both of you for taking the time to read the post. This structure fascinates me in many ways. The butterfly form of a hyperbolic paraboloid had been used with such ingenuity. And the construction process is amazing.
    Using sand hills as moulds for precast concrete slabs is another ingenious Xenakis's solution.

    #8 Good comment, Ken. I read that the reactions of the visitors to what they experienced inside the pavilion ranged from fear to awe. In 1958 no one had ever seen anything like this. The whole concept could also be seen through the post-war era pink lenses.
    I also wonder would people queuing for hours today to experience the Poème Électroniqe.

    Thank you for this Lada. I'm passing it along to my daughter who is an engineer who studied concrete with an expert at Washington University in St. Louis. The beauty of the forms possible through pushing the limits of geometry appeal to me every time I see them.

    As a child of the 1950s I can only imagine how visitors must have reacted to this Poème Électroniqe, with its walk through time, it's stark reality of potential destruction and its occasional glimpses of hope, in a post war world where minds were still numbed by man's inhumanity to man. I can't help but wonder how this would be portrayed today and how visitors would react.

    Understanding #CumulativeEffects requires an appropriate baseline. Wildfire suppression drastically modifies ecosystem composition & function. This Scoular paper describes 4 methods used to estimate fire frequency in Ontario Canada . Dr. Lori Daniels' work at the UBC Tree Ring Lab is documenting fire frequency in BC.
