The Starwave tent is a classic of minimal surface structures based on the model of soap films. Frei Otto designed and built this tent to cover a dance floor in the center of a circular Fountain, the so-called dance fountain during the garden festival in Cologne 1957. In 2001 we replaced the cotton sailcloth with a polyes-ter fabric. The “Tanzbrunnen” has become a popular institution and it is hard to imagine Cologne without it.
