Conclusions - Achieved a desired curvature through the interaction of plywood and carbon fibre. - Further development will explore the arrangement of carbon fibre to further optimise the system. - When the final site is established we can develop a ground connection with the system. - Still in its early stages of design, this proposal creates an exciting possibility for how these materials can interact. -18 hrs. carbon fibre application -324 mts. carbon fibre -9 boards of plywood Flexible segments Pattern
