Gravity, stay the hell away from me....


So, this week I have been working on models for our project. I started the week out with a site model showing where marshlands would be located on our site. Turns out that the marsh is just going to take everything over and eventually there will be no islands. So then, the group came to the decision to make a section model of the building. One that shows the support system inside the building. Only problem is, our sample does not have ends, so now I have a model showing the columns perfectly, but gravity is tearing it apart from the ground up. My only hope is to keep working with stabilizing the structure until it can support itself. But it just begs the question, is this system going to work?
