Frei Otto. Thinking by Modeling
The architect's mode of practice
The second video of the current exhibition on Frei Otto at ZKM Karlsruhe gives an insight into the architect's unique mode of practice.
Frei Otto collected and archived images of natural structures throughout his whole life. The images were source of inspiration and association as well as concrete object of investigation. Frei Otto recognized the model character of nature and tried to utilize it for constructions and architecture.
The exhibition Frei Otto. Thinking by modeling will be shown at ZKM until March 2017.
