Unique in the Netherlands

To provide the adequate atmosphere for the Dolphinarium the architects have chosen this particular combination of timber and fabric, which is unique in the Netherlands. Usually the tensed fabrics are combined with steel structures. In this case it was a big challenge to transfer the tensioning forces from the membrane to the timber structure. The details were specially developed for this project.
