Membrane structures have served humanity since prehistoric times. One of the main life goals for human beings is survival. There is a constant search for protection from aggressive environmental conditions.

In the beginning, there were tent-like structures made of animal’s leather. With the development of human civilization and the need to constantly relocate, the human brain was challenged to invent new ways to protect themselves. Additional elements were combined with leather, to create the first composite materials, proving extremely practical and functional.

Modern membranes have only improved on these qualities, now on different scales: from small rental tents and shade sails ranging up to stadiums and factory plants, covering thousands of people. Technological advances in material production, design, and engineering, combined with human creativity, have erased most limitations for various types of projects and solutions. Membrane structures prove unlimited, multifunctional, versatile, and diverse.
