The exhibition in the Dog Ear Films studio Berlin took place on the 7th September 2012 and presented results of  Design Research Exchange 2012– a residency program for researchers hosted by HENN. During the eight-week long workshops we were working in mixed teams from various fields including architecture, engineering and mathematics. The topic of the research was Minimal Surface High-Rise Structures.
