"Most membrane buildings, whether in Munich, Berlin or Shanghai, are huge umbrellas and sunshades, nothing else."


August 18th the  magazine textile network published an interview with Prof. Dr. Robert Off about the sustainability of membrane construction. According to Prof. Dr. Robert Off, Director of the IMS BAUHAUS® Archineer® Institutes e.V., lightweight construction technology using membranes must become more functional.

The interview discusses questions about the economics of membrane construction today and its potential in the future, why competencies should be linked and the Professor’s vision of the "Bauhaus of the 21st century".
