Exhibition System, Demountable Structural System, Stackable Construction System

This invention presents a unique modular building system that is quick and easy to assemble, requires few or no tools, and is just as easily dissembled. Current constructive systems using panels of sheet material and specialized connectors or brackets are typically difficult and time consuming to assemble. Further, constructive systems that allow quick and simple assembly often lack quality and/or strength.

This invention provides planar members and moment connections joined in a manner that provides a rigid supportive structure. The unique connection allows the surface to appear continuous throughout the structure. Embodiments of this improved modular building system provide advantageous applications for platforms, shelters, spatial dividers, support structures, and more.
