visual delight #6 / Suspence

Rigor
Updating the template made me think of this rigorous framework…
Gaudi’s suspention model for the Sagrada familia..
———————————————
Gaudi constructed this suspension model complete with weights to simulate the weight of the columns,
as a way to determine the proper shape of his columns.
This was in perfect tension. By turning it upside down the columns would be in perfect compression.
