Structural Systems for the Future
The word tensegrity results from the contraction of âtensionalâ and âintegrityâ, a word created by Richard Buckminster Fuller. He went on to describe tensegrity structures as âislands of compression in an ocean of tensionâ, and RenÃ© Motro has developed a comprehensive definition which is âsystems in a stable self equilibriated system comprising a discontinuous set of compressed components inside a continuum of tensioned componentsâ. This publication represents the life work of a leading exponent of a revolutionary and exciting method of structural design.
