Combined post for week 10 & 11
Moving on from Week 9,
We went off to study existing ‘playground’ design to understand the engineering behind it.
Based on the study, we explored the way in which the structure is design, methods of assembly and how the ropes are arranged so that it can support the pressure/weight/tension introduced by the users.
Here are some pictures that we took during the field trip,
On the side note, we are also looking at vines on ropes/metal
The following are some of the design refinements we have over the past weeks.
