Fine Art Design Award Winner.
Awarded for Good Fine Arts and Art Installation Design.
The Hex is a kite-like structure that can be inflated and supported in the air by wind. Generated by a computational process and made from lightweight fabric, the Hex belongs to a family whose members use space-grid geometries but can have different branching patterns, sizes or colors. While the Hex can be enjoyed as a unique air-borne sculpture in a variety of public events, it also serves as a research prototype in the development of inflatable architectural constructions that can be supported by wind rather than by artificially powered pumping systems.Learn More
