Schiphol Plaza Amsterdam
Benthem Crouwel (BCA)
PVC coated polyester
These corridors ensure (departing) passengers to get dry in the arrival hall. The installation of the structure was a difficult feat as such because the hundred of thousands of people that pass through had to continue being able to use the adjacent entrances and exits.
The tent has also been built as the smallest tensile structure of the Netherlands at the Madurodam museum.
The whole structure including the foundations has been installed by Poly-Ned at a depth of no more than 50 cm full of pipework. A greater depth was not available because of the train tunnel below. Horizontally adjustable foundation beams can be found crosswise between each tensioning point.
