Technology Workshop

Our group name is Sticks and Strings..we made a structure based on the concept of tension and compression. The shape of the structure is inspired by origami shape, but it turns out to be very hard to transform the form of origami that is very precise and stable to sticks and strings that really depend on its joints.

This is our origami-inspired-study model, the red ones represent sticks as compression structure, and the black ones represent strings as tension structure.

The main problem is the joint between the sticks and strings, because we need to make a very precise length of strings. As solution, turnbuckles are used to ensure an adjustable and precise joints.

...However, it remained a painful process...

...But it's done. Stricks and strings attached.
