summary Tensegrity structures are not commonly found within the current discourse of architecture. The reason may be that they can only be designed through physical form finding processes. This paper will show how architects can gain the ability to design these structures digitally utilizing physics engines that simulate these form finding processes in real time. To demonstrate this, the paper will use the Underwood Pavilion as a case study to describe a design process that replaces traditional methodologies by digital methods, suggesting a new parametric design approach for lightweight structures and envelopes.
