We analyse the load distribution, forces that indicate the structure (assuming structure are in equilibrium), stress, internal and external loads (both for tension and compression model). Then, we produced a poster that shows these analyses.
What is expected us to analyze the catenary models (particularly Cripta Güell) and understand how they were utilized for form-finding processes and structural studies. Then we produced a catenary structure composed of min. 5 – max. 10 different catenaries/curves. On a cardboard plane we spot several points that will define the endpoints of the catenaries/curves and then form the catenaries/curves physically through paper clips. We are going to hatch between the curves and define a continuous surface. (Tension Model) Then,we produced the same structure and in order to make the structure perform under compression, we stick the paper clips with solder firmly and turn it upside down.
