Suspension aquaduct

I came across the image at left at LowTech Magazine.
Striking use of tension members, for those of us in the circus rigging business. The interesting part is the horizontal "catenaries" (yes I know that's a misnomer), and how they are supported from the suspension cables. I'll remember this the next time I need to design a net for a flying trapeze.

I'll be posting more photos and links relate to acrobatic rigging. Stay tuned.
