On an area of more than 3300m², a tent construction with a surface area in excess of 5000 m² covers an interior dome structure. The Lunar Dome project owes its name to this internal structure. The mobile building began its tour on 5th July and will be in Pasadena and Los Angeles for six weeks before moving on to a total of 18 towns in North America. We are pleased to have had the opportunity to create the whole structural and workshop design for Matthew Churchill Productions. Website.

The membrane covering at the shopping mall “Abeokuta Mall” in Ogun State, Nigeria, has been complete since June. Bent box girders fixed with cables to rear masts have been used for this very light stand covering. The covering consists of nearly 1700m² of PTFE glass fabric which together with the valley cables lying on it secure the load transfer of the complete system when it is subjected to wind suction. We have carried out the structural design for the main contractor formwork ltd. and are proud of the successful project.

On 10.5.2019 the pedestrian and cycle bridge over the Saur linking Metzdorf (D) to Moersdorf (L) was inaugurated. Speakers at the ceremony emphasised how successfully the cooperation between both sides had been and pointed out the significance of the bridge for everyday life in the cross-border communities. The bridge is an important symbol for connections within Europe, especially before the upcoming European elections.

To mark its 150th anniversary, the Zürcher Kantonalbank is actively participating in several different projects: one is the ZüriBahn, a temporary aerial cable-car system above Lake Zurich. The building envelope for both station buildings is designed by formTL.
