There’s a bit of a craze going around at the moment for gravity-defying Tensegrity models. It has now reached the LEGO corner of the internet, and a few days ago Jason Allemann shared a video on how to make one – so I decided to have a go with a selection of rainbow-coloured bricks at my disposal.
Unfortunately, this wasn’t good enough for my friends in the London AFOLs who goaded me into making a Micropolis version – so here is Tensegrity Heights!
It is a top secret research facility, part of Micropolis University, where the boffins are looking into anti-gravity and other such magic. Of course, being such an iconic building, it’s the worst-kept secret in the city, but the staff are blissfully unaware they have been sussed.
A few days later, Beyond The Brick decided to collect a selection of the best LEGO Tensegrity models in this compilation, and I was delighted to be asked if I would contribute (a short clip appears at 2’08”)
