WASHINGTON, DC—The design of Siah Armajani’s finely crafted, model-sized Fibonacci House Bridge appears to derive from the Arts and Crafts Movement. Best known for such architecturally scaled sculpture, Armajani is also recognized for his functional public works including a lighthouse and bridge at St. George’s Ferry Terminal on Staten Island in New York and the Irene Hixson Whitney Bridge, a pedestrian path across a major highway in Minneapolis.
Armajani, an Iranian-born American designed the Olympic cauldron for the 1996 games in Atlanta.
The bridge is a part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum where it is currently on view.
