Please find here a reference list of events that are related to membrane structures. The lectures are categorised by Conference, Symposium, Workshop or Seminar. We used this kind of filter to distinguish:

Conference and symposium are similar events where speakers come together to give their opinions on membrane structures.
Symposium can be described as a smaller conference that is often held in a single day with a lesser number of delegates.
At a "Seminar" lecturers present a concept and technique to discuss with participants.
At a "Workshop" all the elements of a seminar are included  plus "hands-on" eg. physical modelling or even 1:1 models.

The postgraduate Master´s Program on "Lightweight Membrane Structures" combines the pioneering spirit of the early developments made by Frei Otto and his team with the current and future building technologies. Click here for more details.

Nov 06th 2017 | Krems (Vienna) | Master of Engineering: Lightweight Membrane Structures

Postgraduate, 4 semester, part-time

Time: Nov 06th 2017 - Nov 15th 2017

Location: Danube University Krems (Vienna Austria), Dr.-Karl-Dorrek-Strasse 30, 3500 Krems (Vienna), Austria

Recognize the Future:

A historic building or epic landscape, natural feature or contemporary man-made structure are
all capable of inspiring a "moment of recognition".
For most observers, this moment is temporary and transient, creating perhaps a sense of wonder
and curiosity.
For others, including building and design professionals, such moments offer unique opportunities.
Increasingly, the challenge is to rapidly develop these inspirational moments into creative designs
and architectural realities which are economically viable, environmentally sustainable, as well as
aesthetically attractive.

Target Group are Individuals working in the field of Lightweight
Membrane Structures and related fields ranging from Design and
Architecture, Engineering, Business Administration, Manufacturing,
Installation, Textile Industry and also Related Sciences.
