cinema orange | Frei Otto: Spanning the Future

Fee Fridays, no charge

Frei Otto: Spanning the Future is about the life and works of Frei Otto, told in his own words and by those he inspired. Frei 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 a journey through a history of architecture that inspires the world of tomorrow.

Food truck onsite for dining options.

Tickets are handed out beginning at 5pm on the day of the screening. OCMA members may reserve seats in advance here.  Unclaimed tickets will be released 10 minutes prior to the start of the film.

Presented in partnership with Newport Beach Film Festival and organized by Leslie Feibleman, director of special programs and community cinema, Newport Beach Film Festival
