Revolutionary Support System with Massive Architecture Potential: QuaDor [Video]
At the Indaba conference in South Africa, architect and Designer Dror Benshetrit announced an amazing new architectural system or “space truss geometry” called QuaDror . The system has massive potential in architecture, construction and even disaster relief. According to the official website, the unique space truss geometry – now named QuaDror – is made from the assembly of four identical L-shaped pieces, either thin resulting in a trestle structure, or thick resulting in a solid panel. The collapsible system allows for rapid assembly and a transition from closed and flat to open and self-standing. A major advantage of this system is that every single panel has the stability and load-bearing capacity of a cube with only 1/5 of the volume. Impressive acoustic properties, less construction time and fewer heavy machineries needed are just some of the features of the QuaDror.
