"The cloud climber has a tensegrity structure where all the components are ideally either in compression or tension.  Our engineering firm won an award for this. We thought this was a clever way of making something that could stand up simply on three points, and was also very expressive and crazy looking and unlikely - like some clouds can be.  The panels were all painted in trompe l'oeil style to match the rest of the exhibit area, and the client loves that it is a place for safe risk taking."
