Robert Lang Workshop & Public Lecture
The Nature Lab and Brown’s Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) co-hosted the public lecture and workshop "From Flapping Birds to Space Telescopes" by Robert J. Lang.
Recognized as one of the foremost origami artists in the world as well as a pioneer in computational origami and the development of formal design algorithms for folding, Dr. Lang wowed a sold-out audience in Salomon's Center on the mathematics of origami, the history of this art form and its current design applications.
Earlier that day students and faculty from both RISD and Brown had the opportunity to participate in a hands-on workshop held at the Nature Lab to explore different origami structures for technological and design applications. This 3-hour workshop was co-organized with RISD and Brown STEAM clubs.
