Sant Josep de Mollerussa Fair, one of the most important agricultural fairs on the peninsula, taking place for the 147th time, has awarded the stand of the company Estructures Arqué as the best outdoor enclosure of the event. The IASO Textile Architecture department contributed the concept for the stand structure covering system.
The purpose of this creation was to conceive a new type of spatial structure composed only of bars and knots to make it lighter, and quicker and easier to mount. In collaboration with the Arqué technicians, a square canvas was designed which can be installed by a single operator. This canvas, untensioned, is fixed on the structural tubes of the structure by perimeter bags. Tension is then applied by lower hoists located at the central nodes of the structure.
Both companies were very satisfied with the outcome of this project.Therefore, a new version of the design is being developed which will improve the efficiency of this technology, with the objective of implementing it in future projects.
