Aim of the program

It is observed that there is a great demand for membrane and lightweight structures in its different forms since it can be used for covering huge open spaces with minimal intervention and minimal construction time. Especially in tropical and sun-drenched countries the market is growing rapidly.

The technologies of textile building have been advanced and developed enough to be used as important building material in construction all over the world. Cover pages of architectural magazines are filled with the appealing design and spectacular buildings of this craft. But only a few experienced people and companies are able to finally implement these challenging projects.

As a consequence Professor Dr. Robert Off, Anhalt University Germany and Director of the Bauhaus Institutes for Membrane- and Shell Technologies, Building and Real Estate e.V., in 2006 started the worldwide first academic program in order to provide a profound overall education in membrane lightweight structures.

Main aim of this Master- and Archineer® program in Membrane Structures, still unique in the world, is to impart knowledge and proficiency to the participants so that they are able to design, calculate, detail, build and keep textile lightweight constructions.
