Coverage system of walkways EXPO
Milan - 2012
The graphic images of the Masterplan Expo 2015 show for the coverage system of the walkways a light and simple structural system: the tent.
After a series of computer graphics simulations (rendering and 3D movies) it was decided to adopt the following structural solution:
Horizontal tension structural system made with ropes of opposing curvatures and vertical connections elements;
Translucent and pre-stressed cover membrane stabilized with transversal tubes;
Vertical anchoring and support structures realized with a reticular space frame;
Foundational footing system and anchor foundation system made with a gravity system.
