The municipality of Kloster Lehnin near Berlin wanted a sun canopy for a glass-fronted pavilion that houses the tourist information point.
Based on a concept by the local architectural office Ruge, 3dtex developed a canopy with three masts that pass through freely suspended membrane eyes.
The PVC-coated PES fabric from Ferrari is held by horizontal struts, suspended by stainless steel tension rods by the company Ancon.
For the details we searched for an architectural language that fulfils the technical requirements of the membrane structure, yet is as minimalistic as possible and emphasizes the canopy’s overall shape and appearance. The striking design of the canopy is a landmark in the town centre and serves as a focal point in this popular tourist destination.
