Summary Light, economical, easy to transport and quick to erect and dismantle, pneumatic structures have proved themselves to be the most practically successful of recent forms of architectural experimentation. They have already become established,as an ideal method of housing exhibitions, but their use is now spreading to such diverse spheres as warehousing, covered sports halls and temporary accommodation of all kinds. More exotically, they are employed in polar exploration and may well be the first structures to be built on the moon. -- book jacket
