Engineering by Peter Murray - Chartered Engineer
The Reciprocal Frame system is fundamentally one of interaction and interdependence, a system which produces a combined capacity which exceeds the sum of the parts. When an individual member is subjected to local loading, this burden is distributed amongst all of the elements such that the load is dissipated and satisfactorily carried to the ground.

The structural layout provides a unique balance and symmetry, but also one which emphasises the importance of the contribution made by each individual element.

As such, the Reciprocal Frame can be viewed as a reflection of how our world should work. The connections between individual elements can be minimal and yet the ability for the whole to withstand excessive loads is astonishing.

The system will not function without an adequate contribution from all parts – similarly we must all make our own small contribution for society to function as a whole.
