Description

Designed as an open-air environment, The Camp is a celebration of modernism and new technologies, with its decidedly futuristic look. Corinne Vezzoni et Associés, the architecture firm in charge of the project, chose a canopy roof provided by ACS Production, which used Serge Ferrari’s high-technology composite membranes. As Corinne Vezzoni commented, “this solution was the best option available to create the giant ‘parasol’ structure we had envisioned, designed to shelter the whole complex from the sun’s glare.”

The material that was eventually chosen for this ambitious project is Flexlight Xtrem TX30, a durable, lightweight solution, that delivers homogeneous light flow, creating the illusion that the canopy is suspended, blending elegantly into the surrounding natural environment.
