ARENA MULTI-ESPACIO

In Valencia, Spain, the roof of the Arena Multi-Espacio shopping centre is covered by ETFE cushions. The cushions are supported by a truss with steel girders, 3.5m apart. The longest cushion is 24 meters and in total 104 different cushion are produced. Tentech took care of the form-finding and patterning of the 6000m2 ETFE. To control solar transmission the upper foil has a print.

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’.
