Americans celebrate the art of aluminium

  • Comment

An exhibition called 'Aluminum by Design' has opened at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, US - appropriately enough, the birthplace of the American aluminium industry. It will go on tour around the US, albeit in an abbreviated form, before reaching London's Design Museum in October 2002. But those impatient for a view of a magnificent collection of architecture, automobiles, art and ephemera can treat themselves to the handsome book of the show, published by Abrams at £48. Pittsburgh even has a church with a filigree aluminium tower but far more iconic for most is the Airstream trailer, seen here having the lightness of the body demonstrated in 1965.
