In your work I see primarily diagonals (or if you wish, geodesics) some verticals - but few horizontals...
It seems obvious that such structures have very good characteristcs of strength (as diagonality implies ); yet they don't seem very popular (on this forum, at any rate..)
Perhaps the lack of horizontal emphasis (symbolically) makes us feel that we are looking at a floating omni-directed sculptural object, not a earth-grounded structure in which people move about on floors, etc.
