The project methodology describes the structural loads, pressure points and when the direction of the member is changed and also how it behaves. I used diagonal structural lines as a test. The subject was when the load is divided diagonally the pressure point balances the loads through each of the structural members within the whole figure. This helps need less material due to less load in its support. The process defines the natural forces as wind wave/ storm, water wave/ flood and earth wave/ earthquake are balanced and divided within the whole structure and the role of gravitational force.

This is my studio work from the third year. It was a vision to build a highrise. I used the tensile structural system as a base for the project. I am very proud to be able to represent such research outcome at my very early career.
