Within the world congress on climate change
that has taken place in Marrakech, the COP 22, IASO has covered with a tensile
structure the central boulevard.
Eleven days of meetings and analysis where
Heads of Governments from the five continents will congregate, during the
second week of the summit, in order to discuss the immediate future, besides to
what has been learned and ratified by the Paris Agreement which has already
entered into force. It is an important event in terms of defining future
actions on climate migration.
The venue where the COP22 event takes place is
based on a distinctive style that reflects the Moroccan architectural
experience. A space of 68,000 square meters divided into several pavilions,
where the conferences take place, all of them are joined by a corridor of more
than 18 meters wide by 684 meters long. Covered by a structure with a large
tensile PVC cover.
The structure stands out for its irregular
geometry and for the mesh fabric with laminated transparent PVC. The fabric
acquires an important role in this work because of its impermeability and the
transparency of the PVC, which make it more transparent than a dense fabric.
The characteristics and the composition of this fabric offer a diffusion of
colours, which makes it more beautiful when viewed from the inside.
This project started from a premise; that the
structure has to be quick to be fabricated, installed and at the same time
reusable. The architecture department of IASO achieved the goal in only 3
months; by designing, fabricating and installing the tensile structure which
allows to be reused in other locations. IASO was able to fulfill the proposal
of this work thanks to the methodology of Integral Project. This method allows
for greater coordination with all processes and makes the production and
assembly chain more effective and faster.
November, the 22nd "Conference of the Parties" was ended, and it
welcomed representatives from 197 countries.
