Architects infuse structures with eye-catching hanging elements

Implications - An interesting architectural direction is on the rise -- suspension. Architects are having fun with new structures and interiors by installing hanging elements into their designs. From floating conference rooms to suspended nightclubs, this architectural aesthetic offers an intriguing divergence from ground-locked designs and also adds a dash of whimsicality and irregularity to a traditional cityscape or building interior.
