Architectural Tensile Fabric Canopy

Located in Crown Square, Manchester, this 196m2 single inclined conic fabric canopy structure was to feature as the latest part of the Spinningfields development – an area that is fast becoming known as the ‘Canary Warf of the North’. By providing both a focal point and shelter for outdoor events, the tensile fabric canopy needed to lend an entirely new identity to an area surrounded by tall, modern buildings.

Results

Highlighting the benefits of using tensile fabric structures for exterior performance areas, this bespoke fabric canopy structure demonstrates the versatility, practicality and aesthetic possibilities of tensile fabric for extending the use of public spaces. Designed to fit onto existing foundations located at different levels, the undulating fabric perimeter and inclined steelwork present a lively aesthetic in keeping with the vitality of the wider location.
