Four Fabric Structures. A Report.
Photographs and descriptions of four projects using fabric to enclose large spaces are published so that administrators and designers looking for ways to build recreational facilities can consider these innovative shelters. Three of the four examples in this publication are air-supported structures: University of Santa Clara, Charles Wright Academy, and Milligan College. The other type of fabric roof, at La Verne College, is held up from a mast in a similar fashion to a circus tent. Four more large structures under construction or on the drawing boards are briefly described. Technological information and costs are provided. (Author/MLF)
