Bamboo tensile structures are a reality that reflects the use of avant-garde materials for the elaboration of architectural projects.
Technology, ecology and sustainability have advanced so much in recent years, that now the tense structures, velarias and shade cloth have joined this trend, implementing bamboo as a construction material.
The main objective to be achieved within the construction industry is to raise awareness in the sense of seeking alternative solutions to the excessive use of natural resources, renewable and non-renewable, to achieve a correct use of them, increase productivity and reduce the negative impacts it may have on our environment.
That is why the presence of tense bamboo structures in this sector has increased, since it is a material that has historically been used in construction.
Due to its lightness and high resistance, there are more than tensile bamboo structures.
It is used in houses, low-level buildings and scaffolding. Even the Taj Mahal dome has a supporting structure for this floor.
Experts say that to design a structure from this material, it is necessary to provide it with good ‘boots and a hat’, that is, an adequate foundation system and an efficient covering, and that is where membranes and textile materials play a role. important.
That is why they are one of the best options today for the development of Membrane lightweight structures, being a substitute for steel, which offers a lower cost, greater ease of working and adds to being 100 percent recyclable and eco-friendly.
At Hyparch, we have developed bamboo tensile structures projects in various states of the Mexican Republic in applications from restaurant covers, bus stops, and temporary stores for festivals such as Burningman.
