At the ‘Beneath the City’s Skin’ workshop, we encouraged participants to make models using art straws and rolled up newspapers, inspired by triangulated truss structures of some of London’s most iconic buildings. The children uncovered the ‘hidden strength of triangles’ to make creative structures, ranging from the Big Ben to cantilevered skyscrapers and an impressive polyhedron structure on stilts! Everyone had great fun, and the structures were displayed at request of the nearby Broadgate tower to inspire staff and visitors.
