Pavilion performs beautifully

Fabric Structures, Projects | December 1, 2012 | By:

[Structurflex LLC] Kansas City, Mo., U.S.A.

Sitting on top of an underground parking garage, a performance pavilion designed and engineered by Structurflex is a steel frame-supported PTFE-glass fabric tensile structure with cellular polycarbonate paneling. The fabric, Sheerfill® from Saint-Gobain Performance Textiles, has a 12 percent translucency to allow internal illumination to create a glowing “lantern effect” at night. When the shopping center in the downtown Columbus, Ohio, location failed, the city tore it down to replace it with a park and the pavilion, imitating the urban-setting, outdoor performances enjoyed at Bryant Park in New York City. The park can support 100,000 spectators for events and has become an icon in downtown Columbus.
