The Final Ties- Peeling
While this was happening some of us removed the plastic film covering each of the triangles. However, removing the plastic from the corners of the triangles proved challenging as some of the joints between the triangles were slightly overlapping and held onto the film. The zip ties served to further retain the pieces of plastic, but after using an olfa and a ladder to reach the elevated ends, all the plastic bits were removed from our structure. After securing the bottom of the polycarbonate using the metal footings and increasing the transparency of the project by removing the film, we still had to figure out how to support the cantilevered ends of our structure without nearby walls.
