Nomad Concept is a design office that specialises in architectural sails and shade technology and has meanwhile developed into the benchmark for tensile structures and architectural sails. Both at home and abroad, Nomad Concept built up a solid reputation with its ultralight, translucent sails, inspired by Tibetan nomadic tents.
Here we give some examples of sails covering public spaces in parks or squares. In al those examples, the covered space can be used by the public for barbeques, festivities, weddings or simply gatherings of the youth.
Is there anything more beautiful than a free covered place in a nice park that people can reserve for their wedding?
Is there anything more nice than a free place you can reserve for your family party, with a BBQ?
We should give public space back to the people, certainly in urban regions where gardens and open space is scarce. Tensile canopies in durable textile can be practical, but also mark certain spaces and spots.
