Robert Lang designed our Peace Flight sculpture that is on Bryon Street up to the hospital. His origami work was translated into the metal sculpture and was installed in September 2013. He also came to Huntingdon to lecture on origami. His work is amazing. ...

Robert Lang is a physicist who worked at NASA studying lasers and has 46 patents on optoelectronics to his name. However, that's not what he's best known for now: he's a legend in the world of origami. His intricate designs are second to none, and they actually have applications back in engineering.
