Seminar, by Serge Ferrari
This CPD seminar looks at the history and progression of the use of composite membranes and technical fabrics as a viable construction material. The evolution of tensile architecture began in 1964 and has now become a credible option to create both a sustainable and cost-effective solution relevant to today’s innovative environment. This presentation aims to inspire the creation of beautiful buildings by referencing some of the world’s most imaginative architecture.

The Serge Ferrari group designs, manufactures and distributes high-technology eco-friendly flexible composite materials. The unique properties of its products provide solutions to technical challenges in three distinct areas: architecture (solar protection, tensile architecture, acoustic solutions), purpose-specific membranes for professionals, and composite membranes for the consumer market.

For the past ten years, Serge Ferrari has been developing an exemplary environmental strategy and has played a leading role in sustainable development, with its recycling plant in Ferrare, Italy, and a European collection network to reduce its environmental footprint.

Approximate duration excluding time for questions/answers: one hour.
