Tensilation

[Modular Canopy System]

Client

MDT Sonnenschutzsysteme AG, Tägerwilen

Design

Grimshaw Architects, London

The vaulted form of the modular Tensilation canopy system provides an expressive structure that can be used for events, pop-up spaces and as waterproof walkways or permanent outdoor fixtures. The combination of square and diamond-shaped canopy units allows for an almost infinite number of plan configurations. The clear design merges flexibility in the form of easy adaptability with many different setup situations, displaying a high degree of resilience. Weighing only 38 kg, the system offers an innovatively light structure. The design based on canopies, which are attached by textile connectors, is highly functional.
