What is tensegrity?[edit]

Tensegrity is the way the world organizes itself. Build or buy a model and experience it yourself!

Why bother learning about it?[edit]

Whatever your goal in life, it's good to understand how the world works. Tensegrity, discovered about 60 years ago, is a new way of understanding forces at play. Whether you are building a business, designing household objects, building robots, or trying to live sustainably in a resource-challenged world, tensegrity offers innovative ways of thinking about how parts and wholes interact.

What is Tensegrity Wiki, The Encyclopedia of Tensegrity?[edit]

This website is a wiki dedicated to exploring the field of tensegrity, a subset of energetic-synergetic geometry. It is intended to use the "power of crowds" to fine-tune and make available accurate knowledge about tensegrities. This includes all aspects of tensegrity including structural tensegrity sculptures, dynamically adjusting tensegrity robotics, biotensegrity as expressed in cellular mechanics, biotensegrity as expressed in mammalian anatomical fascial/bone structure, tensegrity therapy as a set of mind-body practices, tensegrity as it illuminates ancient philosophies of harmony, music and dance inspired by tensegrity, and so on.

How do I get started?[edit]

Dive into one of our categories, which organize the entries into themes, or access one of our most popular pages: Chronology of Tensegrity, Bridge, 3 struts, Icosahedron, Bicycle Wheel, How To Build A 30 Strut Soda Straw Dodecahedron, How To Build A 3 Strut Copper Base for a Table, Furniture, Arch.

Or write your own entry!

Who can contribute?[edit]

  • University students using the wiki in their studies
  • Anyone.
  • Language? A lot of important work in tensegrity is being conducted as tenségrité (French), tensegridad (Spanish), Tensintegro (Italian), טנסגריטי (Hebrew). But multi-language support is not enabled on this wiki. For now, let's store articles in other languages along with the English ones.
  • Questions? Contact tensegritywiki at gmail, the Wiki moderator.
