Summary To celebrate Frei Otto's 90th birthday, the publication provides insights on the key aspects of his work. At its heart was the search for natural designs and an exploration of form-finding and self-development processes. As such he created a whole universe of ideas using membrane, net and convertible roofs with umbrellas, grid shells, and pneumatic structures. The book highlights his key works and how his ideas were adopted throughout the world.
