Project 1.2 "The Arches" by Trai Praditpong

For the second part of the project; designing beam. I decided that I would like to do something completely different from the first part, the column.

The design of this beam is inspired from arch, combining with the idea of stage structure. With modern technique, old innovation can be used and improve on with modern materials. The structure is made from steel structure. A concrete keystone is placed to hold the beams together at the center point. Without the keystone, the load transfer would not be possible and the structure would collapse.

There are many varies way that the structure can combine to form other structure. In the model, I tried to set up three different ways together to show how they connect to each other and the possibility the structure can be made into.
