I-Mensa is a project for a membrane roof at the main UNI Innsbruck patio.
The concept involves a sculpture which is in fact a bending resistant frame. During spring and summer a membrane can be clumped in that frame.
To reduce the thickness of that bending resistant frame a bracing system, which runs in tangential direction of the membrane, was invented.
In cooperation with Walch Elias.
