Brainstorming space concerning "Tensegrity Tents"...
Dante's intention is to experiment with Tensegrity approaches as to build up an easily foldable tent, which, combined with hammocks ( some kind of large filet ) offer one or more "floors" from which people can socialize or be active.
Dante wishes to experiment with a design which could be used, in winter ( and summer ) time, in a public park of Brussels where people are used to meet each other.
But also, on a larger scale, potentially for a Nomad Tribe approach :
"Tensegrity, tensional integrity or floating compression, is a structural principle based on the use of isolated components in compression inside a net of continuous tension, in such a way that the compressed members (usually bars or struts) do not touch each other and the prestressed tensioned members (usually cables or tendons) delineate the system spatially."
"A hammock is a sling made of fabric, rope, or netting, suspended between two points, used for swinging, sleeping, or resting. It normally consists of one or more cloth panels, or a woven network of twine or thin rope stretched with ropes between two firm anchor points such as trees or posts."
for designing and testing Tensegrity designs :
Another kind of "Yurt" ... Une autre sorte de "Yourte" ...
