Canopy and facades with tensile structure and curved glasses. The use of the tensile structure was required to achieve an aesthetic result in a construction that had to meet stringent standards due to the presence of hurricanes. For the realization of the main entry canopy is used a constructive principle with ropes and struts that characterize also aesthetically the soffit of the cover.
