Abstract

After two classmates had lifted her off the ground by pulling her arms and legs apart, a smiling but somewhat weary student rolled over on the ground, looked up, and asked, "Are you sure this is architecture?" It was a fair question. An hour later, after her group had been shown the similarities between the structure they'd built with their bodies and the roof of Madison Square Garden, the connection became clearer.
