Episode #4- Tensioned membrane structures: The seventh building material for great construction
In this episode, Peter Gosling, Professor of Computational Structural Mechanics at Newcastle University and Bernd Stimpfle, engineer at Form TL , give their expertise on a very interesting topic:
At a time when environmental issues are shaking up the construction industry, could tensile fabric become the seventh building material? Through the evolution of public regulations and economic dynamics, discover the prospects offered by the use of tensile architecture.
Episode #3 - Sustainability and comfort: How does membrane architecture fits today’s challenges in the built environment?
In this episode, Carol Monticelli,Architect and professor at the Milan Polytechnic, and Ramon Sastre, Professor at the Catalan University of Political Science shed light on a new theme: Sustainability and Comfort for tensile architecture. Over the last few decades, comfort and sustainability have become two of the main issues in architecture. Although architectural membranes are a relatively young field compared to conventional construction methods, more and more engineers and architects are taking this option into account to meet new building requirements.
Episode #2 - Tensile Architecture Podcast - Next Generation building through Tensile Architecture.
In this episode, Nitin Govila, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Serge Ferrari Group, gives a vision about tensile architecture in the future of contructions.
How can textile architecture meet tomorrow's environmental demands? Contributing to the construction of more sustainable and environmentally-friendly buildings, lightweight architecture is seeking to enhance its credibility by providing a whole range of proof of its response to the challenges posed to the world of construction.
