AJ is the perfect ready-to-design frame for tensioned membranes.
The membranes can be
- pneumatic;
- tensile structures;
- cable domes.
In all three kinds of structure, membranes work together with AJ cables, AJ columns and other AJ standard components members to find the final form. Membranes have been also used as non-structural cladding, as at the Beijing National Stadium where the spaces between the massive steel structural members are infilled with PTFE coated glass fiber fabric and ETFE foil. The other major building on the site, built for the 2008 Summer Olympics, is the Beijing National Aquatics Center, also known as the Water Cube. It is entirely clad in 100,000 square metres of inflated ETFE foil cushions arranged as an apparently random cellular structure.
