Abstract

NASA:

The role of tensegrity in the architecture of organic structures is examined. Topics include a definition of tensegrity, principles of tensegrity applied to the skeleton and cytoskeleton, mechanics in biochemistry, self-assembly of organic structures, geodesic forms in cellular structure, and the universality of the geodesic form.
