Tent roof campus University St. Gallen, Switzerland
The St. Gallen Symposium has become an international forum, promoting the dialogue at the highest level between the business, political, societal and scientific worlds, between generations and nations. The International Students Committee (ISC) has made it its goal to carry on this success story.
To cover the required open areas on the campus against bad weather conditions, an individual membrane roofing was desired. The design provides an textile roof of 1375 sqm, its form is defined by high and low points of the boundary geometry. The roof is developed between the existing buildings, creating an inviting and expressive language of shape.
