First Analogue Prototypes

Our first few attempts at the analogue prototypes. The method tested was to hang fabric and pull it at nodes by applying a force, in this case the weight hung. Different weights were tested on a voronoi cell frame with differentiated cell sizes. The process was refined through testing different models and some failed protoypes. The method works by tensioning the fabric and freezing it with a plaster compound. The materials utilized resemble the properties of tensioned membranes (fabric) and compression properties of concrete (plaster).

  1. Hi, I am wondering what kind of fabric is this?
