|buckminster fuller developed a three-dimensional structure that combined a flexible part in tension and a solid part in compression. the name he chose was tensional-integrity or tensegrity.
guided by john kirk long ago, i have been fascinated by this form, and have constructed a few models.
i would like to find someone who shares this fascination and has the ability to finance a larger, more artful, version.
the materials cost is open, but under $30,000. the labor cost is also open but under $60,000.
if you or someone that you know might be interested, please let me know.
