That's right kids, BAM has made another suspension installation! Check out this whopping stack of 497 lanterns. Those lanterns gradually grow from the top to the bottom, creating a funicular shape. Yes, you're right, funicular shapes have great structural properties! Good work BAM!!! Alt text And that slight twist, which creates a double rotation effect when viewed in plan? That's the Fibbonaci sequence at work! Each rotation is based on the magical mathematic sequence that works on sunflowers and rabbit procreation! Amazing!!! Alt text Alt text The whole thing is over 16 meters tall and 11 meters wide. And its all suspended from a single hoist!!! Alt text Stay tuned to see what BAM cooks up next!
