Abstract

The "Kite" Project consists of a temporary/semitemporary tensile structural module meant to meet specific functional needs, such as the following: - Covered path way. - Theatre. - Church. - Play ground. 1 Foreword The "Kite" Project is the result of the elaboration of module A. Which is 1/8 of the spherical plan: by arranging the arches in different ways, a number of variants of model A is obtained: variant B, its overturned variant B', and C. The main goal is compositive flexibility in order to obtain a different disposition of masses of the same plan, thus developing various functional needs. 2 Description The proposed modules, shown in Figure No.l, have the same ground plan: 1/4 of circle, but they leave different volumetric sizes and different shapes: - Module A = three convex arches. - Module B = two convex arches and one co
