Yes! They’re designed to withstand their environment.
Tensile structures are often described as ‘lightweight’ because they don’t use a lot of materials.Really, ‘lightweight’ just means you need fewer materials to construct a tensile building than a traditional one.
But, it can lead to concerns over whether the structure will be strong enough to stand the test of time.
(Which is actually a key cost and sustainability benefit of choosing tensile.)
So, using steel as the skeleton of the building means you need even less material to create a strong frame.The tensile building, which had been designed to suit the weather of the site, was not.
