Project 1.2 "Beam: Counterbalance beam", by Vasawat Dulyavit

counterbalance beam

According to the design of the column in the first phase, in order to design a beam, I took the same concept about counterbalancing 2 collapsible element in order to make it stand. Basically, the beam is the element which connect 2 columns together and prevent them from collapsing.

The image shows the joint which is interpreted as a beam that connect 2 columns together 

Prototype: experiment ting on the choice of material and different kind of joint
