Designing for Membrane Architecture [A1]

This presentation will provide an overview of the analysis, design, and fabrication of membrane structures with the hope of increasing collaboration between architects and engineers to design successful membrane structures. It will also discuss form-finding to generate the geometry of a membrane structure, as well as design assumptions and fabrication of a membrane's structure, patterning, welding, and some typical connections.

This course is based on a past NASCC session.
