Tensegrity

The visionary architect Buckminster Fuller coined the term “tensegrity” to name a phenomena he observed in nature wherein structural strength is created through a network of tensioned parts. Traditional architecture creates stability through the stacked compression of bricks and stones. Tensegrity spurred a revolution in the arts and sciences opening new ways to build

 

While most built examples of this concept are built with steel, cables, and hardware, our Tensegrity leverages the properties of textiles and air. Its parts appear to levitate, they float without touching yet stay in a sturdy togetherness. It stands as a reminder that it is the connections between things, and not the individual units, which can create a dynamic, yet resilient whole.
