Through this workshop, a load-bearing structure has been created with the help of curved forms and has no use of verticals. A better understanding was developed of how each loop supports the next and load travel in such a structure from the apex to the body. The concentration of loads at nodes causes failures. If we give support at these points, the failures can be avoided. The model also has a wide base, and the walls are at an angle that gives stability to the form. The various joineries were done with the help of a thread in the process.

When rolled, newspapers possess excellent compressive properties. The thicker the roll, the more the strength. It is fascinating how such a flimsy material can carry such loads, nearly six times its weight.
Overall, the workshop answered the question of how height is a huge structural challenge. Most of the initial models worked well with less height, but the addition of height led to its failure. A careful and efficient design is needed to identify these points of failure and counteract them. Joineries also play a crucial role in the structure.
