Stretched structures design stages
All the textile architecture projects begin with the sketch drawing to have an idea of the general appearance.
In search of the form
The second step is the search of the form by a specific software using the strength density method.
We create physical mockups of the project using textile materials to have an idea of the global performance.
The next step to build a stretched structure is the non-linear calculation for membranes including hybrid structures (membrane-steel).
The manufacturing of the membrane cover goes through defining the cut patterns so as fixing the edge and joints’ details.
All the elements are defined to manufacture a textile structure: textile knots, anchor plates, foundations, vertexes and joints.
Manufacturing and set up
Finally, Okatent provides all the necessary equipment to manufacture and set up its structures, guided by an expert technical team.
Okatent is a company able to offer solutions for each one of the design stages of stretched structures. From the first sketch to the final set up, every step must be considered and resolved at the same time. Textile architecture is perfect to cover open spaces such as playgrounds, public squares, stages, events, parking lots, leisure zones, sport facilities, shopping malls, etc.
