Paper Title:
Instant Built Tensegrity Structures with 3D Compression Members
  Abstract

Tensegrity structures are of interest to architecture and engineering as a practical means to explore lightweight and rapidly deployable modular structures that have a high degree of geometric freedom and formal potency. The notion of tensegrity structures with 3D ‘compressed’ components is accreted by authors in 2009 [1]. This extended class of tensegrity overcomes some of the difficulties of typically ones by providing increased rigidity and more controlled structural behaviour. These two characteristics make 3D compression member tensegrity structures more suitable for practical use in building instant stand up structures. In this paper, the Authors introduce a method to create instant built structures with 3D Compression Members including the modules creation, digital form finding and assembling procedures. Exmple of a speculative design for a footbridge and a high rise building is demonstrated.
