Human bodies, the Georgia dome and the Singapore flyer all benefit from the flexibility, toughness, and efficiency of tensegrity structures. Made from a combination of the words tension and integrity, the word tensegrity is used to describe structures that are primarily supported by continuous tension systems with discrete or disconnected rigid elements. In architecture,  tensegrity offers sculptural effects like those seen in Kenneth Snelson’s sculptures and even the “floating table” that has recently gone viral online. This hands-on workshop will explore new systems of tensegrity allowing participants to get some experience building architectural model kits and manipulating a 4m diameter tensegrity prototype.
