Learn how to make fantastic pneumatic structures with readily available, inexpensive materials. The class will make various shapes and sizes of human-scaled inhabitable spaces, then experience and consider the ethereal atmosphere they give shape to. Participants will also learn about the history of inflatable structures, various materials and methods for construction, and applications for temporary events and other fun uses.
This class is taught by Jesse Seegers and is offered in preparation for an exhibit including a large-scale inflatable that will open at Pioneer Works in September.
Jesse Seegers is a spatial practitioner and the Associate Editor of Digital Projects at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.
