Tensegrity is, in its essence, a structural principle based on the use of isolated components in compression inside a net of continuous tension. The term itself is an amalgamation of ‘tensional integrity’ coined by inventor Buckminster Fuller. Tensegrity structures maintain their integrity due to the balance between tension exerted by cables and compression applied by rods or struts.

In architecture, these systems are lauded for their ability to create complex, flexible structures with a minimal amount of material. They possess inherent robustness and resilience, making them ideal for constructing bridges, towers, and sculpture art.

Beyond architectural realms, tensegrity offers valuable insights into biological structure and mechanics. It can be identified in the musculoskeletal system where bones represent the compressional struts within a network of tensile muscles and ligaments.
