Tensegrity / Kenneth Snelson

The simplest tensegrity structure. Each of three compression members is symmetric with the other two, and symmetric from end to end. Each end is connected to three cables which provide compression and which precisely define the position of that end in the same way as the three cables in the Skylon tower define the bottom end of that pillar.
A similar structure but with four compression members.
