Stuttgart-based architects Kugel Architekten and the engineers of str.ucture developed a foldable Membrane roof that spans over a 50 meter long pedestrian road in the center of Buchs, Switzerland. In the deployed state the membrane takes on an undulating shape, pronounced by sharp ridges and valleys. The retracted membrane is collected under a parking bridge at the northern end and presents itself as the entrance arch of the road.
