The Building Centre in London hosted the traveling Hoberman retrospective, ‘Living Form: The Transformable Work of Chuck Hoberman.’ Having debuted in Japan at the POLA Museum Annex in early 2010, the exhibition included a collection of commissioned sculptures, prototypes, and inventions that reflect the transformation of Hoberman’s thinking as a designer and inventor from 1990 to Present.

New to this showing - the first Hoberman retrospective held in the UK - is a series of prototypes of Intelligent Surfaces – the adaptive shading systems developed by Hoberman’s Adaptive Building Initiative venture. The prototypes were fabricated in collaboration with Zahner.

Through animated sculptures, hands-on exhibits, prints and videos, this multimedia, multidimensional exhibition chronicles the multi-facted and ever-evolving work Hoberman been creating for over twenty years – from kinetic sculpture to live entertainment to adaptive architecture.

The exhibition corresponded with the Adaptive Architecture conference - hosted by The Building Centre and Sponsored by Adaptive Building Initiative and Buro Happold. Chuck Hoberman was a keynote speaker.
