Membranes convey various feelings to performance venue visitors

Commercial Industrial Delta S.A. | Lima, Peru

This is a scene for culture and art, situated in Alameda del Rio Park, neighboring the Government Palace. Proposed by Lima’s Town Council, it is part of the “Amusement and Culture Area,” along the Rimac River in Lima, Peru. The scene’s base is a circular platform, over which a covering with posts, cables and membranes has been designed. The primary challenge was to convey a variety of feelings to the users, achieved here through the lightness of this building, the shape of the membranes, and the rhythm with which they were organized. The result, which won an Outstanding Achievement Award in the tensile structures under 930m2 (10,000 sq. ft.) category of the 2007 International Achievement Awards, is fairly fluid, with coverings resembling sails’ movements, harmonizing with the flow of the river.
