Developed in collaboration with John Umphlett for the Production of Unconventional Spaces class at Bennington College, the think tank is a space for exploring pneumatic structures. This space is used to design, prototype, experiment with, and perform in pneumatic structures developed for this class. It will serve as the womb for the conception and design of an inflatable structure of larger scale.
