AMPHITHEATRE

The roof of the amphitheater of the Floriade 2012 covers the bowl of the theater and protects it against the adjacent water. The opening of the roof cover offers a view from the grandstand onto the water behind the theater. The performances take advantage of the unique shape, by approaching the stage from the water.

A curved tube is chosen to outline the edge of the enclosure. The tube is designed as a continuous tangent curvature. The membrane is connected to the tube under the natural angle of the fabric without any additional detailing. Because of its shape, the theater has received the nickname ‘Pringle’.

Textile architecture projects

The covering of a courtyard, canopies or stadiums… Tentech is part of the building team when textile and complex geometric shapes are used in new or existing architecture. Often we are responsible for a specific part of the design. In dialogue with the architect, contractor and client, we achieve an optimal contribution.

The design…

Our designs are characterized by sculptural quality and clean detailing, along with requirements of the location and usage of the structure. Combined they result into strong architectural concepts, in which aesthetics goes hand in hand with safe usage.

…and more

Our work doesn’t end with the realization of the technical design. We focus on all aspects of the design and production process that have an impact on textile architecture. Therefore, we are involved with all phases of the design process: from project definition, composition and preliminary design to the technical design, quotation, workshop drawings and maintenance. Supervising production, translating design into tailor made cutting patterns and connections, and assistance in the search and selection of the right market participants, are also part of our services. In our view, this is part of ‘modern craftsmanship’.
