List of hyperboloid structures
This page is a list of hyperboloid structures. These were first applied in architecture by Russian engineer Vladimir Shukhov (1853–1939). Shukhov built his first example as a water tower (hyperbolic shell) for the 1896 All-Russian Exposition. Subsequently, more have been designed by other architects, including Le Corbusier, Antoni Gaudí, Eduardo Torroja, Oscar Niemeyer and Ieoh Ming Pei.
The shapes are doubly ruled surfaces, which can be classed as:
Hyperboloid ship masts
- Hyperboloid masts of Andrei Pervozvanny-class battleships
- Hyperboloid masts of USS West Virginia, prior to refitting in 1942–1944
- Hyperboloid masts of USS New Mexico, prior to refitting in 1931
- Hyperboloid masts of USS Arizona, prior to refitting in 1929
- Hyperboloid masts of USS Oklahoma, prior to refitting in 1927–1929
