About This Book

The word tensegrity results from the contraction of 'tensional' and 'integrity', a word created by Richard Buckminster Fuller. He went on to describe tensegrity structures as 'islands of compression in an ocean of tension', and René Motro has developed a comprehensive definition which is 'systems in a stable self equilibriated system comprising a discontinuous set of compressed components inside a continuum of tensioned components'. This publication represents the life work of a leading exponent of a revolutionary and exciting method of structural design.* Represents the life work of a leading exponent of a revolutionary and exciting method of structural design
* Applicable to architecture as an established structural system, can also be applied to other fields
* Design professionals will be able to design better structures. Interested non-professionals will experience the great pleasure of being able to say "I understand why the Hisshorn tower stands up"
