Client: Architen Landrell (2012)

Tensile fabric roof over retail units


This is a kilometre long continuous tensile membrane roof of 35,000 square metres covering the retail units. The PVC Polyester fabricroof manufactured by our client Architen Landrell is arranged around a horseshoe plan and provides the unifying element in this Richard Rogers Partnership design. The tensile fabric roof is the largest continuous tensile membrane structure in the world. The architect, wanted to create something different; moving away from the conventional shopping experience by creating an outside shopping experience protected from the elements and unlike anything ever constructed.  Our role comprised the design and modelling of all perimeter fabric connection elements as well as the engineering of the oculus mast caps.
