Description

A Conversation with Frei Otto

One of the twentieth century's most important design visionaries, German architect and structural engineer Frei Otto(b. 1925) made his mark with a series of super-light tensile structures—such as the West German Pavilion for Montreal's Expo 67 and the Olympic Stadium in Munich (1972)—that are celebrated for their technical ingenuity and material efficiency. Yet despite Otto's achievements, relatively little has been published on his work. A Conversation with Frei Otto features a comprehensive interview with Otto as well as his critical text Fundamentals of a Future Architecture in its entirety. In his conversation with Juan María Songel, Otto talks freely about everything from his early connections to the Bauhaus to his thoughts on the current state of engineering and architecture. The latest in our Conversations series, this book also includes images of Otto's most important and well-known works.
