Airport Leipzig/Halle - Platform Canopy

Leipzig, Germany, 2003

The railway roof structure consist of various arches made of welded I-profiles. Steel girders with a tube section are connecting the arches and transfer the horizontal forces to the bracings. The two railway-platforms are covered by a membrane spanning from one arch to the other. Every membrane-panel is prestressed by a middle-cable tied back to the ground.
