The well-established series of Textile Roofs is back home.

Between 20th and 22nd of May 2019, the 24th edition of the “International Workshop on the Design and Practical Realization of Architectural Membrane Structures” will take place. After our event in Moscow in 2018 we look forward to welcome again a variety of interesting participants from the fields of architecture, engineering, manufacturing, materials and more in order to get re-united at the old site in Berlin, GERMANY, on the subjects of membrane construction.

The format of Textile Roofs is unique. In addition to a large number of high-quality specialist lectures, which are held under the scientific supervision of Prof. Rosemarie Wagner (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), the outstanding experts from all over the world will share with you their knowledge and the insight view on both: general market opportunities and the best approaches to build with textiles, based on specific projects.

There are a number of workshop activities in which you can work hands-on and talk to the respective experts. A computational modelling workshop on design, statical analysis and pattern generation for surface structures (offered by technet GmbH), an insight into the art of physical modelling of surface structures (offered by University Lecturer Jürgen Hennicke, a former assistant and scientist with the famous architect Frei Otto) and the possibility to build a real structure together with the other participants in the garden of the venue (offered by 3dtex GmbH, Berlin) are just a few of the program items that can make a visit to TR19 be interesting and useful for you.

A special guest lecture given by Mr. Nicholas Goldsmith (FTL Design Engineering Studio, New York) and an exciting evening dinner at the Spree riverside after a sightseeing tour boat trip will complete the program.
