BREAD & BUTTER - BERLIN
A pneumatic Pavilion, often used at music festivals, is constructed on an open area in Berlin. In order to get building approval a calculation in accordance with the Eurocode has to be submitted. The foundation forces are calculated and the current design is proved to be sufficient.
The pavilion consists of a star-shaped stage with a stabilizing steel frame of 5 legs and a ring. The steel frame is covered with a pvc-membrane and in the ring a pneumatic sphere with a diameter of 8 m is located.
In a very short time, the report needed to be completed to give the client permission to directly start the building works.
