The pictures presented are the result of a membrane Structures Design Seminar conducted at the architecture school of the University of Stuttgart during the winter semesters of the years 2009, 2010 and 2011.
In this seminar students learn the basic design principles in dealing with membrane structures. The Seminar includes form finding techniques both digital and with physical models. In addition, the students learn about the detailing of membrane structures, different textile materials, and the manufacture process and the installation of Membrane Structures.
