select one bendable structures a first tent composition inflatable origami I started making models
how to make a full size and serially producable tent from this? I went to a Taiwanese packaging factory to produce a few test models only in black though... but with some help from NCKU students most importantly, I learned about the production process so I built a curvature sealer
transformed a digital cutter into a digital sealer and started prototyping
making an inflatable tent Joshua Klappe
and a 'self-bending' sealing pattern design of a valve system production in Taiwan picking colours produced ground sheets on roll and finally, the flysheets launching the 'tucky' at 5 major festivals publications (click for link) ready for recycling in use
figured out a closing mechanism
finalized the design
