DIS Workshop . Group 4 . Tensegrity

BY : Anusha Arunkumar, Silasalin Krisanarungkhun, Marina Lazareva, Mahdi Najafi

The main approach of this exercise for us was to find and test the some parameters that may influence the structures that are really work with tensional integrity or better to say tensegrity. So we tried to study the behavior of different geometries and joints, and figure out their impact on tensional behavior of a structure. Begining with a simple surface, some parameters were have been manipulated in both real physical model, and virtual simulations in Kangaroo. And Finally, we discovered a somehow balanced relation between geometrical patterns, joint types and supports, to distribute the loads in a double curved surface.

Data Informed Structures – Post Workshop


When designing a material system within the architectural field, the main purpose and the most basic analysis are about how the structure is able to transfer to the ground loads and forces and how efficient it can be in providing safe utilization by the users and achieving specific architectural solutions (they can be both structural and about aesthetic). Representing the first challenge in construction, structural behavior has always been needing experience, training and scientific studies.

DIS WORKSHOP_ Folding and Counter Balance





The design idea was based on generating a shell cantilever structure with minimal foot print. For achieving this purpose multiple configuration were explored as an evolution, where each iteration was informed by the previous one. The final piece consisted in a folded structure, where the material thickness (counter balance), type and density of folds responded to local needs detected using Karamba.
