Forces of Nature – Reciprocal Structures

Reciprocal Structures is the exploration using Kangaroo Physics Simulation Engine to investigate pre-stretched fabric structures. RS is developed by flipping the tangent vectors of the base mesh and then each edge is rotated about an axis through its midpoint and normal to the surface, then extended slightly so that they cross over to produce the substructure for the roof top pavilion.
