Data Informed Structures Workshop






The idea of a cable system is using the tension of cables to help the structure bear the load from all
directions. Different cables help the structure to keep stable depend on different load types,
which allow some cable rest while others working. That could prevent the material to be tired
and enable the structure used longer.
According to structural analysis, the different part of timber has different bending directions. So we
use the different type of connections to help the timber reduce bending force. The main load for the
timbers connected to the ground is compression and share. We have some design to help
compression transform and prevent its movement on the ground.
