In the scope of 21,39 Jeddah Arts Festival we designed a special presentation documenting the pioneering work in biomimicry and adaptability of Pritzker Architecture Prize winner Frei Otto (1925–2015). Based on his interest in capturing natural forms, the archive material finds itself on such an organic shaped table with niches and corners that encourage visitors to immerse oneself in and explore.

“Architecture of Tomorrow. Frei Otto’s Legacy in Saudi Arabia.” Curated by Maya El Khalil and Georg Vrachliotis. Graphic design by Floyd E. Schulze. Saudi Art Council SAC, Jeddah / KSA, 28 Jan – 18 Apr 2020.
