Active tensegrity study with Kangaroo # 1

( Red menders –  shrinkage, green those – slack )

First attempts to simulate behavior of  active tensegrity componet with Kangaroo, plug-in for Grasshopper  in Rhinoceros.
We continuously investigate model of the roof based on our proposal, LRT STATION DESIGN COMPETITION, OKAYAMA JAPAN, 2010.

It was difficult to see the behavior of kinetic roof in physical module made of 5*5 the component for Kinetic art fair 2012.Therefore, we use the physical engine to discover the global form of the active tensegrity.
