Passing by Dexter Lawn recently, students may have noticed a variety of interesting structures scattered about. The display, a project the members of Professor Michael Botwin’s advanced structural systems class took on, was designed to help students understand the complexity of full-scale buildings by creating smaller unconventional designs using strings. BeeJae Visitacion, a graphic communication junior, admired the display as he studied for a midterm next to one of the pieces Wednesday. By understanding the basic tactics for designs that hold strong structural capabilities, students become one step closer in their quest to some day design full-scale buildings.
