Washington University Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts says
The Sam Fox School Student Council presents a free public screening of Frei Otto: Spanning the Future, a documentary about the life and works of Frei Otto, told in his own words and by those he inspired.

Otto's understanding of architecture's fundamental relationship to natural forces is the foundation of today's architecture. As technology advances, his methods are now becoming more widely adopted, as are his broader philosophical concepts about solving the world's most pressing issues. Featuring Zaha Hadid and Frei Otto in one of the last interviews given before his passing, this film takes architecture fans on journey through a history of architecture that inspires the world of tomorrow.

Simon K. Chiu is the executive producer of the documentary, which is written and narrated by Michael Paglia and directed by Joshua V. Hassel.
