Project 1.1: Modular column by Chapat Tiwutanond

Module Prototype

 
In this part of the project I chose to approach the concept of modularity and adapt it with my column design. My column consist of 4 - 8 triangulated modules which are oriented so that they spiral up to form a column. Each modules consists of 2 steel triangle pipes which are connected by tension cables,these cables when joined together makes the structure of the column more stable. After the first design i decided to change my column, and came up with a new type of module. The second type of module consist of 2 types of jigsaw-like parts. These smaller modules then forms up a column and could also be connected to form different forms of columns.
