Tensile membrane architecture for sport and leisure facilities

Tensile membrane architecture is a powerful force in the sport and leisure sectors. This is clearly demonstrated by the large number of stadium projects that have chosen membrane materials for their roofs and façades. Tensile membrane architecture is as diverse as sport itself.

For swimming pools and leisure centres, ETFE foil cushion systems from Temme // Obermeier provide protection against the elements and allow light to flood into the building giving occupants the feeling of being outdoors. At the same time the reduction in noise levels inside the building due to the low reverberation time creates a pleasant environment. Common applications include:

  • Grandstand roofs
  • Stadium roofs and façades
  • Outdoor stages
  • Temporary venues
  • Zoos
