Animated Prototypes 11 - 12
VP12 Elevation Compressed
VP12 Plan Compressed
Composed of multiple singles tube which stretches across a field of two parallel axes. System expands down the axes as external flood levels rise. Braids of tubing allow the system to stretch as it expands, taking the adjacent links.
Composed of a single circular ring which braids and connects to adjacent rings, internally connected throughout. Three or more vertical supports anchor the system to the ground plane; this prototype uses four anchoring supports. External forces allow the system to raise and expand via rising flood levels.
