Up-and-coming generation: The student competition “Textile Structures for New Building” is organised every two years within the framework of the Techtextil trade fair. On the one hand, this contest stimulates students to work in an innovative way with textiles and design textile buildings, and on the other hand, offers the up-and-coming generation to compete at an international level. The student competition runs in a successful and professional manner since several years. The TensiNet Association is a dedicated sponsor.

European Design Guide for Tensile Structures - Chapter 2 - Engineering Fabric Architecture
The purpose of this chapter is to outline the nature and characteristics of this structural type and to describe the primary issues that designers deal with and make decisions about.
