Structure [2013]

Malaquais 2nd year team work (2013)
Teacher : Clément Carrière


This project is focused on the fabrication of a 1.2 meters long model made out exclusively of spaghetti, in the idea that the weakness of this material requests to use it in a structural manner. The structure is composed of 9 lattice gantries that are braced together. All the gantries are built with only 5 different types of beams, and their traction fiber is inverted at the mid-height nodes in order to support the charges in a more efficient way.
