“With art and excelling design, concise and pure appearance, as well as eco-friendly technology, the Water Cube is definitely a classic of architecture in the Olympic history. Adopting an ETFE pneumatic die cushion structure, the Water Cube is the world’s largest membrane structure building.”
What an inspirational example of innovative design, but look at the construction details of how this works to truly get inspired. I wonder if this type of textile technology could be applied to geodesic structures?
