London Festival of Architecture 2018
We are hosting an Open Studio and workshop as part of LFA 2018.
The theme is Tensegrity, but you will also gain an insight into our projects and how our thirst for experimentation helps us realise complex projects, often with low budgets.
Tensegrity is a word coined by Buckminster Fuller that describes a structural system developed by him in the 1960’s, working with Kenneth Snelson in the USA. It was also developed independently by David Emmerich working in France around the same time. Tensegrity is a system that is still little known and we believe under used.
A lecture on Tensegrity will be delivered at 15:00, following by a model making workshop.
Guests will have an opportunity to participate in a workshop that explains the system of Tensegrity and the potential of these structures. StructureMode’s team will guide you through a hands-on exploration of Tensegrity.
Although this is an Open Studio, and you may come and go at any time, it is recommended to attend the lecture before participating in model making workshop.
This workshop is open to all ages.
