Kite:the Hex by Wind Architecture Studio

Wind Architecture Studio Exhibits The The Hex Kite

Wind Architecture Studio, the author of the awarded design Wind Architecture Studio's The Hex Kite explicates, 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..
