Space. Simple form. Both mask a complexity inherent in tensile architecture. The structure in place, itself evidence of science and careful planning, stands to remind us of what can be achieved with the intelligent use of rods working together in tension.
Be it a glazed curtain wall, a suspended roof structure, a simple yet elegant suspension bridge, or a cable net or grid structure, all can depend on rods as the primary load carrying elements. The results are structures of unique depth and openness, with large spans made possible by balancing the need for reduced self weight, with the application of minimalist and efficient high tensile rod tendons. This is lightweight tensile architecture and a Ronstan passion.
