summary Research into self-assembly systems has been growing in recent years, focusing on the design and engineering of materials to react to environmental factors, which trigger a chain of reactions promoting the components to build themselves. This paper attempts to expand this field with the design and testing of a full-scale structure that could be dropped high above the ground, self-assemble in the air in a matter of seconds, and form an inhabitable space on the ground. This system uses spline-based fiberglass rods, folded in specific configurations and connected with parachute surfaces as the main material system, enabling the global aerial performance. A series of drop tests were conducted from a 100? crane to investigate the unfolding sequence, the release mechanisms, and the parachute configurations, leading to its successful aerial assembly.
