This project is based on the inflatable part of TENSE-ABLES.

Optimizing the air-pocket pattern to achieve the best building shape with the minimum amount of air demand.

That is, we can use the least energy to construct Tense-Ables.



Connect with Galapagos



In addition, adding the solid rod in the mesh spring to represent the effect of tensegrity members during inflation.


Therefore, we can simulate the result by not only edit the geometry of the air-pocket but also the rigid members.
