As we are from time to time subjected to "big" pics of structures in this forum, I thought we might as well use them as an incentive...:-)

I wanted to recall here the work of Robert Le Ricolais (I believe Kahn liked him enough to discuss his designs with him before drawing them)!
In the "Bucky"'s era of "tensegrity", Le Ricolais brought a new understanding of stuctures...

The following text is quite suggestive....(the link in blue) And I believe it might be a good basis for a nice provocative thread on architecture, scale, and human perceivness...:-):-):-)

For a short view of Le Ricolais...: http://www.upenn.edu/almanac/v42/n19/ricolais.html
