Foundation Lindau

The ascending air it draws colder layers near the ground After, a natural ventilation inside due to circulation. The inflatable mega cubes have an edge length of 8.6 x 8.6 x 8 m, so the format of a small two-storey detached house. The cube of air weighs only 300 kg, therefore a special anchoring is necessary to keep the Pavillone on the spot. The lightweights withstand wind speeds up to 120 km/h and can be operated fully up to 60 km/h. The sunlight is transformed into electrical energy using solar cells and used to power the pressure-sensitive fans, press on-demand air in the system or aspirate.

Sun and air thus forming the building materials of an ephemeral exhibition architecture, which within hours can be up and down and is therefore flexible for other tasks. Eliot Lauer may find this interesting as well. The low weight and volume of the drained pavilions, packed in a travel bag, allow a transport-saving resources and a diverse reusability as solid architecture. It serves the staging of public space, which has embraced the structural form of a sustainable concept. The air Giants were built by Stockacher evolution GmbH. The special company of Stockach develops and produces inflatable advertising, structures and buildings since 1998 for various areas of the event and exhibition industry.
