Typology

BASIC SHAPES OF MEMBRANE STRUCTURES

HIGH POINT IN SURFACE  

"Conic shape", one of the most common

shapes, variable structure

LOW POINT IN SURFACE  

"Conic shape", one of the most common

shapes, beautiful interior solution

ARCH IN SURFACE  

Elegant solution, creates a beautiful shape

ARCH ON EDGE  

"Saddle shape", elegant solution,

neat looking edge

RIDGE/WALLEY  

Changing upper and lower cable creates

an elegant shape, suitable for convertibles

VARIANT SHAPES

4 POINT SAIL SNOW  

Changing upper and lower points, patterns

oriented from high point to high point

6 POINT SAIL  

Changing upper and lower points creates

double curvature

2 HIGH POINTS  

High point is a variable shape, able to easy

connect another modules using an arch

3 HIGH POINTS  

Connecting more modules in a row

to create wide area covering

4 HIGH POINTS  

Connecting another modules in both

directions to create blanket area covering

RING  

The rigid edge creates "saddle shaped"

geometry, similar to a potato chip

Arch used as a support inside the structure

and for the edges

ARCH SURFACE/EDGE POINTS 

Arch used as a support inside the structure,

edges made by points

MANY HIGH AND LOW POINS

Canging of multiple high and low points,

possilbke to create variable shapes

Typology Samples

Creation of "Beauty" demands the perfect shape. The following typologies are "initial shapes".

The list of Typologies is currently in development and we update it regularly.

The Typology page should be ready till Summer 2017

Our goal is to make Typologies "readable" and comprehensive to find the suitable shape for your project.
