System showing an open structure of strings to the right in contrast to a denser structure of wood left.
Below there is an other density of string and structure, in the same structural element.
Detail of possible solution to make a loadbearing beam cross all the sections, and minimize the number of joints.
Below, a variation of angles, potentially makes the canopy rise and fall.
I think I now realise, that the system needs 3 points of
contact (between sections) in order to be stable.
This system varies the ancle of the triangle taking pressure, which potentially makes the canopy rise and fall.
Also the string should be vertical or leaning this direction.
