English term or phrase: tensegrity structure
Проблема не только в нахождении эквивалентного термина на русском, но и в нахождении самого термина в английском словаре, т.е. как лексему:) (этимология тоже очень интересует)

Контекст: "A tensegrity structure refers to the mast where the main part of the mast acts in compression and it is stabilised against lateral bending by out-riggers"
Kanki
Russian translation:See definition below
Explanation:
Tensegrities are structures invented by Richard Buckminster Fuller.

"The word 'tensegrity' is an invention: a contraction of 'tensional integrity.' Tensegrity describes a structural-relationship principle in which structural shape is guaranteed by the finitely closed, comprehensively continuous, tensional behaviors of the system and not by the discontinuous and exclusively local compressional member behaviors. Tensegrity provides the ability to yield increasingly without ultimately breaking or coming asunder."
