Proposed catenary bridge system using self-supporting tensegrity modules across a span. The horizontal members were conceptualized to support the pedestrian plane, whilst vertical members hold together a stretched fabric for shelter and shading.
Proof-of-concept before final production and installation
TENSEGRITY + CATENARY
Status: Finished - Archived
Teammates: Bangayan, Chris; Hilado, Nicole; Axalan, Dave; Flores, Melwyn
Practical application of tensegrity structural principles - that is, a system in equilibrium held in place by both compressive and tensile forces. Mass-produced modules were produced and prototyped by the team.
