G30 Summer Pavilion Work in Progress 03

In order to test the accuracy of structural simulations of shell-formed tensegrity structure, we have built 1:3 scaled model. The process of assembly remained the same as our last model, with multiple ropes to hoist the entire structure in one go. The structural simulations have been a lot more complicated than what we expected; we are collaborating with Prof. Sato and structural engineers from Obayashi Co.
