Among the facts of life in the Age of Mobility are urban traffic jams and overpopulation. This project’s aim is to improve the quality of life in crowded metropolises by means of a portable tool that city dwellers can use to partition off a space of their own. Single Stroke Structures are based on a digital fabrication system that instantly conjures up an architectural object by inflating a thin plastic tube. The user, by applying heat and pressure, can control the inflated tube’s curvature and configure it into various shapes.
