Item description for Tensegrity: Structural Systems for the Future by Rene Motro...
The word tensegrity results from the contraction of 'tensional' and 'integrity', a word created by Richard Buckminster Fuller. He went on to describe tensegrity structures as 'islands of compression in an ocean of tension', and RenAc Motro has developed a comprehensive definition which is 'systems in a stable self equilibriated system comprising a discontinuous set of compressed components inside a continuum of tensioned components'.
This publication represents the life work of a leading exponent of a revolutionary and exciting method of structural design.
