Heres a cool link to give insight into planar architecture/objects. The forms in this modern style home are elegant and thoughtful, yet still prove secure enough to support the structure. This can be something to think about when designing and building the Cartesian Plane table in Mechanical and Structural Design Principles.
other links to projects are available for future inspiration, for instance Karen Cliento's "New Dalian Shide FC Stadium." The experience of the spectator is improved by creating "a strong integral gesture" by combining style and structure.
This site, Archdaily, even gives details like architectural plans. An overall useful website.
