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 Maria 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.
