As a first step, this paper looks into the structural performance of structural membranes spanning two planar, bending resistant elements, such as floor slabs, which are held at a predefined distance by vertical pin-joint struts only.
It is shown that combining the ease of assembly of conventional members and the 3D-bracing-effect of membranes result in highly efficient architectural structures.
