The term Tensile structure refers to the category of surface tensioned structures which achieve their stability thought the use of double curvature, i.e. membrane and cable-net structures. The advent of new materials and construction technologies thought history has often led the designers of buildings to rethink and sometimes reshape, even the very meaning of architecture. With the ability to span large distances with minimum means less is more turns to more with less.
CBLS is currently working on a very exciting project that involves the creation and development of a tensile roof structure. More project details to be released soon.
