Frei Otto is considered one of the most influential architects of the 20th century. Whilst his work is primarily characterised by constructive boldness and structural lightness, it equally stands for new dawnings, pluralism and freedom. The interplay of construction, poetry and visionary thinking is what makes his buildings so fascinating right up to the present day. Frei Otto was posthumously awarded the Pritzker Prize for Architecture for his life’s work, in 2015.
