Tensile roofs add character to a building thanks to the fluidity and airiness of the forms created. They have become a hallmark of contemporary architecture. The geometry of a timber or steel frame used in conjunction with a membrane and combined with elegantly ancillary detailing elements, enable a vast array of architectural expressions to be obtained.
The translucency of the textile membranes can be used by a designer to work with the manifestation of light and shadow.
Use of tensile membrane architecture is well established and finds its most famous exponents among the landmark football stadiums that are found in cities throughout the globe.
Its exceptional durability associated with its great architectural qualities are the guarantors of fine architecture.
