HISTORIC PONCE CITY MARKET


An architectural façade screening system on all four sides of the seven-story Ponce City Market parking structure transforms it from an eyesore to a point of visual interest.

The tensile mesh façade is composed of a metallic silver coated PES mesh that costs a fraction of metal mesh or perforated metal, but has the look, feel, and lifespan of more expensive metal mesh. Double-layer, overlapping vertical bands of tensile mesh are secured with aluminum extrusions to tension the mesh mounted to cantilevered structural steel framework.

The ventilated tensile mesh eliminates the need for mechanical ventilation and allows for those inside the structure to have an unobstructed view out. The façade screens light pollution emitted by interior and car lights, and provides shading to reduce heat and solar gain inside the structure.

KieranTimberlake: Printed Tensile Cladding at Rice Unversity

We are pleased to have collaborated with KieranTimberlake and the outfit of a parking structure on the Rice University Campus. In their blog post, they describe the concepts they employed to create an iconic sculptural element. For more details see the KieranTimberlake blog post.

The Increasing Importance of Durability

While tensile fabric has several distinct advantages over more traditional materials like glass, one of the most important may be its ability to withstand severe weather events. Our tensile structures and tensile facades  in Miami, Jacksonville, Houston, Fort Worth, Waco, and Atlanta did not sustain any damage or require any repair despite enduring events ranging […]
