COMBINATIONAL MODEL / EXPERIMENT SEVEN

In this exercise, we built upon concepts developed in our reciprocal model and further investigated the cantilevering conditions. While our reciprocal model relied on dowels to transfer load, the need for taller floor to floor height motivated us to introduce trusses to the model, which are tensile members that transfer load diagonally.

The vertical core then transfers load to the base vertically. This system allowed for the creation of three cantilevering decks that progressively cantilever further out, with each space free of structure.
