Christine Otto Kanstinger MAA Lecture _Form Finding

¨We do not force a form, we search for a form¨ said Christine Otto.

Christine Otto talked about the importance of the physical model experimentation for the structural security apart from others. Digital models on the other hand do not offer that! Her lecture included information on projects of her father Frei Otto as well as different projects that she is developing with students in workshops around the world.

In an era were ¨digitalization¨ of design has spread to all architectural processes and even functions, it might be of essential importance to understand the architectural ¨object¨outside the virtual environment and as reactive to the physical environment, responding to physical conditions.
