Description

An exiting structure built in the beautiful Viginia landscape this 3700m2 (40,000 sq.ft) amphitheatre will be used as a music pavilion and arts arena.

The fabric enclosure measures about 3700m2 in plan and consists of a number of radial ridge and valley cables. These radiate out from one main mast that is 42m (140ft) in height, to perimeter masts and valley tie downs. Fabric is then clamped to these cables using aluminum clips and clamp plates.

Buro Happold completed full fabric cutting patterns, cable schedules and fabrication drawings for all elements of the structural design.
