Alain Lobel, an Architect from France, developed a triangulated modular system which forms geodesic structures based on a single universal connector. No matter how the triangles are positioned, the stresses converge towards the center of the universal connector.
What makes this system so appealing to me is the entire system is based on standardized components, thus making manufacturing economical. Although I don’t believe the universal connector to exist on a larger production scale, the design of the modular system does present amazing possibilities for flexible & easily deployable shelters.
