The limitation of available resources and the economic and climatic
costs of energy inevitably lead to light constructions as a necessary
means of curtailing consumption.The documented workshops “Flying
Structures” and “Fold Fly Inflate” investigates and tests how those
light structures can be digitally fabricated and parametrically designed
using lasercutting and 3D printing technology. The resulting prototypes
were developed in a collaborative process.
