¿What is Tensegrity?

Tensegrity structures are really intriguing: bars floating in the air, without any contact to a ‘solid’ support, attached only by wires to other bars… that are also floating in the air! People in general, and particularly specialists, like to contemplate such a ‘magic’ phenomenon of which they do not understand.

 

What’s tensegrity? “Food for thought.”
Jörg Schlaich

 

Several definitions have been established by different experts. One of the more complete ones could be this one:

Tensegrity 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.
