A Gallery of Infinite Frameworks

(permanently under construction, and open to contributions)

Lancaster University Geometric Rigidity Group




The Project: A convenient EXHIBITION of infinite bar-joint (bond-node) frameworks, and related infinite geometric structures (body-pin, body-bar, tensegrities, ... ) with comments on their rigidity and their flexibility. We are particularly interested in displaying examples which have a new point of interest, or which exhibit a "new mathematical phenomenon", or which, for whatever reason, seem unique or amusing.
