This traversing structure spans between the parapet of a retaining wall and a window cill. Its design aims to be visually lightweight, minimise the use of material, and retain a high degree of structural stiffness. The truss deepens in the centre where the greatest bending stresses are encountered. The component parts are coded to allow for ease of fabrication and tessellate to minimize cutting and material use.
