Sambil Barquisimeto Mall

Pubblicato da TS Engineering il

The central hall (230×430 feet) of Sambil Barquisimeto fits the contour of the guitar-like shape which prevails in the image design of the mall. Six poles and the central “spine”: 28 feet wide, glass-covered truss, support a cable net system that anchors the whole structure to the concrete roof. A PVC membrane teflon coated (Ferrari) spans on both sides of the spine.
