EXPO 2015 Pedestrian Paths Cover

Milan - 2012 - 2015

EXPO 2015 Masterplan highlights for pedestrian paths cover a light and simple structural solution: the tent.

After several graphical simulations (rendering and 3Ds) it has been chosen the following structural solution:

  • Tensile Horizontal structural system made by cables with opposite curvature and vertical connections;
  • Translucent prestressed membrane cover, stabilized by transversal tubes;
  • Vertical structures as anchorage and support as truss beam structure;
  • Foundation with plinths and gravity anchorage foundation.
