Evolutions in Structural Systems

STRUCTURE

The evolution of these structures have occurred not only in its material, but also in its structural forms, construction techniques and joinery details ranging from the use of ropes of G.I. wires to rebar connectors. Explorations in various structural systems being lattice grid structure, tensigrity, parametric structure and geodesic structure has been an integral part of our evolution.

Evolution in Structural Systems

Building smaller prototypes and then trying to span the material in most optimized manner has been the process to experiment and understand the behavior of the materials. Using different materials to create shelters, led to the explorations of structural systems that compliment in horizontal spanning.
