Bending-Active Structure

Bending-Active Rod and Cable-Net Hybrid Structure.
Chen, 2016-04-02

This project attempts to explore the controlling and fabricating of bending-active material through a new cable-net tensioning system. The bending-active and cable-net hybrid structure is scarcely explored in the field of architecture, and the goal of this project is to obtain a solution to bring the structure into fabrication through multiple physical model experiments and computational simulations. Especially a certain cable fabrication syntax is developed to fit the new hybrid structure.
