History Study Group: Tensegrity Systems: a brief history


Geoff Morrow will present a summary of Tensegrity structures: a brief history, clarify its defining characteristics, categorisation of types, constructed examples of Tensegrity structures, and propose future applications of the system. Geoff will also present a demountable ‘Tension Pavilion’ that StructureMode designed and constructed using a pure Tensegrity system. Geoff presented a peer reviewed research paper on this at the IASS 2018 conference at MIT this summer. Copies of the full paper will be available for attendees.

Geoff is a chartered member of the Institution of Structural Engineers. He founded StructureMode in 2007, driven by his passion for beautiful and sustainable design through a creative, innovative and collaborative approach to structural engineering.
