Tensile structures tend to have, you know, large kind of concrete structures that when will have tendons that will hold up these little spine moments so you get big, heavy structures, but only in one location, and then the large spans end up being with softer flexible materials and it's just through the gravity loading that allows these things to span and stretch and stretch over and make a covering over a large space. And there's a number of very, very good examples of these, and the whole point here is the reason this little thing is leaning away is that you're trying to sort of pull those things into tension. So you're pulling it so that you're stretching the material so it wants to stay in a nice, taut form.
