STRUCTURAL DESIGN OFFICE 

The project concerns the design of a prestressed membrane system to provide shading to the park's buildings. The whole structure comprises two independent subsystems: The buildings system that comprises five membranes of 17.00 x 17.00 m and the entrance system, which consists of four 11.00 x 11.00m membranes.

Each membrane is rectangular in plan and obtains a double parabola shape when installed. All edges of the membranes are attached to steel strands. All strands a anchored to the prestressing mechanisms at the top of the steel columns.

The steel columns are regular SHS sections. They are all pin supported at their base and held in place by four prestressed strands.
