Award for Excellence 2019, Tension Structures - 250sqm to 2000sqm

The area consists of an outdoor amphitheatre that had recently undergone a significant redevelopment to cater to the ever-growing popularity of the bird show. Part of this redevelopment included upgrading the existing structure to a much larger structure that could cater to this increasing audience of the free flight bird show, Wildskies. One of the most important aspects of the structure’s design was the arch at the front, which was suspended on columns. This allowed the appropriate clearances for the birds to fly under the structure and over the crowd. It was hard to get the geometry right for the ponding of the canopy considering the slope of the terrain in which it was installed. Therefore, particular time was spent on the geometry of the structure to make sure it didn’t pond. The client has let us know that the birds love it! The structure is a much improved upgrade to the amphitheatre that guests, employees and birds can enjoy! As you can imagine, the client is very happy with this and the large crowds can enjoy the bird show in superior comfort.
