Membrane structures

Membrane structures

Enlarge picture

Tensile membrane structures is architecture of new generation as well as possibility to supplement traditional architectural solutions. Tensioned membrane material is considered to be the fifth construction element after metal, stone, glass, and concrete.

Tensile fabric structures are used as:

- stadiums;
- sports facilities;
- exhibition halls;
- business centers;
- concert halls and etc.;
- shade roofs of the entrance of hotels, restaurants, cafes, and other commercial buildings;
- airport roofs, bus, train stations and terminals, car parking and gas stations;
- other permanent or temporary structures.

Structures are easy to combine and coordinate with other materials, such as wood, glass, stainless steel structures, connections, as well as cables, and since the material used is light translucently, incredibly attractive and luxurious image of the structure is obtained if properly arrange illumination of the structure.

Humanitarian Development Program HDP

Enlarge picture

Yesterday we received an email form our partner:
Why I write you about the fact that I received a telephone call from the United Nations yesterday and they were busy with a big project. This project was about the fact that they need several storage structures in Africa, in Kenya, Ghana and South Africa to be specific. These structures would have a total area of about a 100.000 square feet and they would need these halls for food and aid storage. At this moment they work with about ten companies already but they have invited us aswell.

There will be a conference in Nairobi, Kenya, in October and we are invited to come aswell. At this conference there will be all invited companies who can talk and discuss business directly with the United Nations...

National Swimming Centre

National Swimming Centre
2008 Olympics
Beijing, China


Hello to everyone!

I’m not aware of overall community audience opinion but I, personally, find the opportunity to share issues of my interest with other open-minded people exciting.

Some time ago I remember Discovery channel showed Beijing venues planned to be constructed for Olympics 2008 in China. One of architectural decisions I liked a lot. Probably one of the reasons is that it touches upon my professional interests and tech textile industry of course. Maybe the majority will consider this information a bit dated, but anyway I’d like to tell a few words about the structure known as “Watercube”.

The plotter/cutter FMG for fabric products manufacture

The plotter/cutter FMG production system originates from the sail-making sector. The sailing sector has been an excellent development ground for various reasons, primarily for the precision required in the production of panels, and paradoxically, the fact that sail-makers have neither got used to using computers nor come to terms with industrial production logic.

Frei Otto Life and his Lightweight tensile membrane structures

Enlarge picture


Otto studied architecture in Berlin before being drafted into the Luftwaffe as a fighter pilot in the last years of World War II. It is said that he was interred in a French POW camp and, with his aviation engineering training and lack of material and an urgent need for housing, began experimenting with tents for shelter. After the war he studied briefly in the US and visited Erich Mendelsohn, Mies van der Rohe, Richard Neutra, and Frank Lloyd Wright. He began private practice in Germany in 1952. His saddle-shaped cable-net music pavilion at the Bundesgartenschau Kassel in Stuttgart brought him his first significant attention. He earned a doctorate about tensioned constructions in 1954.
