Ceiling lighting made of ETFE foils for airports
In the new terminal of Madrid airport, designed by Richard
Rogers, a series of roof lightings provides the entire building
with natural light. Those roof lightings, also called lenses, are a
combination of single layer ETFE foil and a silicone coated fiber
glass fabric for the ETFE roof.
Buitink Technology made 620 pieces of lenses in
collaboration with IASO in Lleida and Comercial Maritima L&Z
s.l. in Vigo. The lenses are intended to diffuse the ambiant light
in the interior of the new airport.
The lenses are made of a frame with on the outer side an ETFE
foil and on the inner side a silicone coated fiber glass fabric
that is meant to diffuse the ambiant light. The diameter of each
lens is about 6 m.
Year of implementation 2002.
