A traversing structure designed to cantilever across a walkway linking two buildings. A central 3D printed node connects five elements. Four leg elements resist vertical/ horizontal load and level/ align the structure ensuring stability. The final element cantilevers across the walkway, stopping just short of the wall. Each element utilises the bending forces in the timber members and ties which reduces weight and provides an efficient structural form.
