“Thanks to their high elasticity and resilience, the constructiv PON connecting tubes can be radially shaped under tension in their longitudinal axes. The result is sculptural and amorphous free forms. When dismantled, the elastically shaped tubes spring back into their original shape.

A meshwork of diagonally arranged squares is put together on the floor. By using shortened diagonal braces, this meshwork is shaped under tension into a rotunda. Six connecting tubes sharing the same center complete the rotunda giving it the structure of a tent. By using bielastic fabrics, this structure is turned into a yurt, which can be used in an ideal way as a temporary space to retreat at fairs.”
