Architecture+Design Film Festival: Frei Otto: Spanning the Future

Sat, May 6 / 7 pm
Directed by Joshua Hassel
2016, USA, 60 min

Like great birds in flight, the tensile structures of Frei Otto (1925-2015) are wonders to behold. As this documentary reveals, the works of this Pritzker laureate—whose name means “Free”—are eloquent ecological and political statements, grounded in specific histories of influence, with an engineering ethos tethered by poetic principles.

Sponsored by Crosier, Kilgour and Partners.

Reviews

Focusing on his built works from the ‘60s and ‘70s—including the German pavilion at Expo ’67 and the Olympic Stadium for the Munich games of 1972, Frei Otto: Spanning the Future is an inspiring portrait of an architect, researcher, educator for which experimentation in architecture would hopefully lead to a more peaceful and sustainable inhabited world.
