Evolving System of Material and Performance: Six Hands Typology (Part 2)


Continuing previous post about branching typology with tension active system, I would like to show the design of the next component: six hand component.

The six hands component have six hands coming out from the center.

The form of this component is similar to the minimal Surface Schwarz P surface, founded by Hermann amandus Schwarz.

This is structural analysis of the component (4 hands, 6 hands and 8 hands component) in rhino membrane.

Schwarz P surface is described in the  web page of Indiana University ( as:"The P-surface can be constructed by solving the Plateau problem for a 4-gon with corners at the vertices of a regular octahedron. The resulting surface is then extended by 180º rotations about the straight boundary lines."
