Plusminus / pneumatic Gridshell

Plusminus

material TRENDS award

material TRENDS award

The lattice shell is considered to be one of the most efficient surface structures which is able to span unsupported over wide spaces with minimal material input by using a net of bar-shaped elements. The special thing about "Plusminus" the pneumatic lattice shell is the minimal dead load of the structure. The bar-shaped elements are connected flexible at their cross-over points and shape a grid shell. "Plusminus" attains the fixing of the cross-over points and thereby the bracing of the framework by evacuating two foil coverings which are situated above and under the grid and are pressing the cross-over points together.
