Original Abstract

Tensegrity is a structural principle based on the use of isolated components in compression inside a net of continuous tension, in a way that the compressed members (also known as bars/struts) do not touch each other and the prestressed tensioned members (usually known as cables/tendons/strings) delineate the system spatially. Tensegrity plays a vital role in technological advancement of mankind in many fields ranging from architecture to biology.
