I NEED HELP!!!... Anyone know anything about stretched-skin and cable net structures?


I have a design project in this semester's structures class, where I have to design a functional stretched-skin or cable net structure (to enclose a sizable courtyard) and I have a whopping two weeks to do it... This means that I have to learn ALOT about these systems very, very quickly, so that I may then have the time to actually formulate a concept, design the structure, and create my presentation. HELP!

Does ANYONE know anything about these structural systems, and where I may find online resources that visually depict the different types of stretched-skin or cable net systems available, and may also provide details/sections, etc of thier design?
