He went on to describe tensegrity structures as islands of compression in an ocean of tension, and Rene Motro has developed a comprehensive definition which is systems in a stable self equilibriated system comprising a discontinuous set of compressed components inside a continuum of tensioned components .This publication represents the life work of a leading exponent of a revolutionary and exciting method of structural design.* Represents the life work of a leading exponent of a revolutionary and exciting method of structural design* Applicable to architecture as an established structural system, can also be applied to other fields* Design professionals will be able to design better structures. Interested non-professionals will experience the great pleasure of being able to say I understand why the Hisshorn tower stands up
