Known internationally for his Transformable Structures, Chuck Hoberman is an inventor whose work demonstrates how objects are foldable, retractable, or shape-shifting. Such capabilities lead to functional benefits: portability, instantaneous opening, and intelligent responsiveness within the built environment. Examples of his commissioned work include the Hoberman Arch in Salt Lake City, Utah, as well as the retractable dome for the World's Fair in Hanover, Germany. His work has exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and he will be showing a commissioned installation at MoMA in 2008. Hoberman is the founder of Hoberman Associates, a multidisciplinary practice with clients that range across sectors. The firm is currently engaged in a series of architectural projects to create the next generation of adaptive buildings, collaborating with numerous architects, including Foster + Partners. These projects are developing retractable facades, responsive shading and ventilation, operable roofs, and canopies.
