The Stick Structure was originally constructed to be used as a life size structural stability model in which students could learn about load flow and stiffness of different structural configurations.  While the structure was intended to be deconstructed and reconfigured on a regular basis, this was never done and after 30 years the structure fell into disrepair.  The structure was deconstructed and rebuilt in its current configuration with low maintenance materials.
