Triangles and Polygons workshop with Dylan Martorell
This workshop looked at the structural properties of the triangle with a focus on basic polygons as a starting point for exploration.
There where three parts to the workshop
a) a group drawing exercise using groups of 3 to create grids of patterned triangles
b) polygon exercise using toothpics and pearl tapioca to create triangle based structures.
c) Large scale structure exercise using bamboo, fabric and carrots.
This exercise combined the idea of working as a team with the basic structural knowledge we picked up in the first exercise to create a large structure strong enough to hold 22 kgs of carrots.
