unprecedented freedom of structural
||Home > Deltaribs
The system of Deltaribs is now ready for its first application in
a building. For this, we are looking for a team (client, architect,
manufacturer) to build this innovation together. The principles of the
system are established, known and tested. All that rests is an
optimisation of the modelling, engineering and fabrication. Please contact
Martijn Veltkamp if you are interested to join.
|The system lends itself for pavilions, facades, roofs
and canopies, all with spans up to 15 meter. The pattern of ribs
distinguishes the structure from every other.
Many types of
coverings are envisageable for the openings between, above or below
the ribs, and is up to the imagination of the design team. Examples
are composite panels and transparant or translucent inflated
cushions of ETFE-foil.
