Exhibition “TENSILE STRUCTURES: FROM SPIDER WEB TO GIBRALTAR’S BRIDGE”
An overview on the most efficient load bearing system known to date.
The dream of overcoming the force of gravity is so innate in the instinct of humankind that he has always tried to fly even with his own strength. In constructions, the idea of creating structures such light that seems almost transparent is also an idea as old as man, as well as the dream of many engineers. Tensile structures are the emblem of this dream, as they seem to be held on the ground by the few anchors that support them and prevent them from flying away at any moment.
The exhibition will be open for free throughout the day of the San Lazzaro’s festivity, March 18th, and, only by reservation (by calling 0546-34433 or directly addressing with Marco Peroni Ingegneria Office in the Annunziata’s Church, across the street), until the whole month of June.
