Info: Architectural and structural design of the ETFE roof of the Italian Pavilion for Expo Dubai 2020.
The Italian pavilion for Expo Dubai 2020 was designed by Carlo Ratti Associates, Italo Rota and Matteo Gatto in collaboration with F&M Ingegneria. Maco Technology provided its consultancy for the architectural and structural design of the roof of the pavilion made up of a series of ETFE cushions of different shapes and sizes. The complexity of the work derives from the free and three-dimensional form of the substructure to which the ETFE envelope will be conncected. The covered area will be about 1600 square meters and the internal comfort will be guaranteed by a triple layer cushion system with solar factor G = 0.2.
