Transformable: Building Structures that Change Themselves
Date: Thursday 13 February 2014
Venue: Lecture Hall
Inventor Chuck Hoberman will speak about his pioneering work in transformable design with projects that range from public art to kinetic facades to dynamic sets for live entertainment. He will discuss the process of realising large-scale transformable structures, starting from inventive concept through engineering and fabrication.
Chuck Hoberman is the founder of Hoberman Associates, a multidisciplinary practice that utilises transformable principles for a wide range of applications including dynamic architecture, transformable stage sets, consumer products, deployable shelters and structures for aerospace.
All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
