Tensegrity Tower

The moment I saw the Snelson Tower at one of the Smithsonian museums in Washington, DC, I was fascinated. His tower uses the principle of “tensegrity” to suspend aluminum poles in the air. A friend and I managed to create a
similar structure, although Snelson’s work is much more dramatic and pleasing to
the eye than is our effort.
