Production : County Durham, UK

Design : Napper Architects, UK

Description :

The edges of the fabric canopies are supported variously by steel edge cables, membrane plates and continuous connections to steel circular hollow sections at both the rings and arches. The low shear stiffness of PVC-polyester fabric enables the double curvature of the conic forms to be achieved with little risk of wrinkling The membrane plates hold the fabric in place between two steel plates that are bolted together, with short sections of steel tube welded to the bottom plate to facilitate connection to the edge cables
