In terms of our LSAA Design Awards, a Medium sized Fabric Structure, or tensioned membrane structure) would have a surface area of between 250 and 1000 sqm.

Note that many "Large" fabric structures may be made from individual fabric panels of 250-1000 sqm.

Again, a large Mall covering might comprise multiple conical structures of 250-1000 sqm.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project was essentially a weather cover over a public space. During discussions with our sales team at the tendering stage it was clear that the project also had an element of environmental consideration. For this reason we developed a custom design that worked to these constraints.

The purpose according to builders was to create an inviting public recreation area. The architects specified a tensile membrane roof in order to cover the area while allowing natural light to enter the space.

"Advances the technology in insulated membranes"

"Rather idiosyncratic form which answers a functional challenge, has a bit of fun, and provides some identity to a facility not short of disparate elements"


PROJECT NAME: Glen Eira Sports & Aquatic Centre Insulated Tension Canopy

Glen Eira Aquatic Centre

APPLICATION OF PROJECT: To encapsulate two vertically inter-twined waterslides, stairwell and support tower with a fully insulated tension structure. 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

This is an insulated conic tension structure. A truncated, highly curved eccentric cone on an inclined elliptical ring beam, best describes the geometric definition of this structure. The architectural intent was to create a temperature controlled environment within a chlorinated water activity space and thereby satisfy ecologically sustainable development guidelines.
