G30 Summer Pavilion Work in Progress 01

G30 Summer Pavilion Project has officially kicked off. As two previous pavilion projects, Pro. Jun Sato will join us as our structural engineer.

The structural system was developed as a Tensegrity, connecting varying sizes of components with thin stainless cables, creating a network of tension and compression in the form of stable shell structure. When the components are linked as a 2D surface, it remains as flexible. When the 2D surface is positioned in a specific 3D geometry, it locks into a stable Tensegrity structure.
