Part of the renovation of “Mundo-E” shopping center was the membrane roof cover. This project used a combination of flying cable-suspended masts forming membrane cones and arches. Every mast has its angle of inclination and creates attractive movement along the walkway. The main geometry follows the opening borders and was made regarding all support locations. We used a cable suspended system to achieve a clear view from the inside, while also reducing material usage. All cone tips are tapped with a transparent membrane to introduce natural light inside the mall and have openings to let the air circulate, while reducing heating values under the roof.
