Textile Roofs 2012

The Seventeenth International Workshop on the Design and Practical Realisation of Architectural Membrane Structures

University of Technology Berlin, 2012 May 14 - May 16 Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr. h.c. Lothar Gruendig

Hosted by the University of Technology Berlin


The main objectives of this workshop are to provide fundamental information, as well as presenting the state-of-the-art in textile roof engineering. Above all, the workshop aims to provide practical answers to real-world questions.


In addition to a comprehensive series of lectures presented in English by key figures from the membrane structure industry and academia, opportunity for the hands-on development of practical case-studies in an informal tutorial environment will be provided.

During the afternoons the hands-on workshop will run with opportunities for both physical and computational modelling under the guidance of the workshop team. Each participant will work with advanced and High-End Software products. In parallel to this one joint project about the roofing of one of the Geodätenstand platforms will be discussed with the participants in the afternoons and specialist presentations are given. On the afternoon of the last workshop day (16th May) this roofing will be presented by the students of the Textile Roofs 2012 student‚s working week (10th May - 16th May) during a parting drink.

On Monday (14th May) evening the special guest lecture will be presented by Mr. Wolfgang Rudorf-Witrin from CENO TEC GmbH, Greven, Germany. The workshop banquet will take place on Tuesday evening after a sightseeing trip by tour boat.

The detailed programme of Textile Roofs 2012 is now online and can be found at the workshop‚s website.

Textile Roofs 2012 starts on May, 14th in the morning. For those who will arrive earlier in Berlin an icebreaker party will be organized on Sunday evening (May, 13th) at the Technische Universitaet Berlin.
