The concept of tensegrity within a living form, produced by tensional forces between ridged and pliable structures, resembles the tensegrity model that has been illustrated through architectures and sculptures.  A tensegrity model relies on localised areas of compression that are connected, unit wide by tensile force. Ridged structures, surrounded by the continuous tensional forces of pliable structures, appear to float within the construction (Fuller, 1975, as cited in Hohenschurz-Schmidt, Esteves, & Thomson, 2016). The human body offers a biomechanical example, combining rigid structures (bones) and tensioned elements (connective tissue) that form a stable arrangement with global tensional connections.
