Motro Form Finding[edit]

In "Structural Morphology Of Tensegrity Systems" Motro applies a free-form method of discovery to the generation of unusual tensegrity forms. The 7 strut is generated in a series from 4 to 8 struts. He wrote, "The process is started from a simple system and, next, more and more struts and cables are added step by step."
