Irregular tensegrity

Tensegrity structures were popularized by Buckminster Fuller. Usually with geometrical pattern, ‘irregular tensegrity’ does not follow a pattern: the roads (compression members) are kept stable between two stretched plastic foils (tension elements). 

Instead the roads (the elements compensating pressure), one can use elements with any shape, thus transforming the structure into a kind of sculpture.
Themes: - irregular shapes
- architectural principles

Model to show the idea of ‘Irregular tensegrity’. The elements have no pattern: the roads or any other form or element that can compensate pressure (compression members) are kept stable between two stretched plastic foils (tension elements).
