Tensegrity 2v{1,1} Double-Layer - Hot by TaffGoch Tensegrity 2v{1,1} Double-Layer - Hot by TaffGoch
Tensegrity sphere • Polyhedral basis: Icosahedron • Geodesic tessellation: Class-II • Frequency: 2v{1,1} • Composed of 60 interconnected "tripod" tensegrity-prisms • Each prism is composed of three struts, providing 180 struts, total • Radius of inner-tendon-layer is constrained to 80% of the radius of the outer-tendon-layer

"Tensegrity" is an elision of "tension" + "integrity" • Sphere rigidity is provided by tension elements (tendons) and compression elements (struts) • No strut touches another strut
