here's something about Denver, Colo., and the
use of fabric structures. First came the Denver
International Airport, with its iconic peaked
fabric roof of the Jeppesen Terminal (1995)
designed by Fentress Bradburn Architects. The conical
skylights were reportedly inspired by the Rocky
Mountains backdrop to the airport. Then, in 2014, came
a reworking of the downtown 1914 Union Station train
terminal with a sweeping, undulating arched fabric
canopy by SOM Architects that embraces the railyards
and passenger platforms. It has become "Denver's Living
Room," helping solidify fabric as this region's material of
choice for transportation projects.
Denver's affinity with fabric became further evident
in 2017 with the city's new intermodal Civic Center
Station, a bus transport hub that ties in with Union
Station. This $31 million Regional Transportation
District (RTD) revitalization includes even more
fabric canopies that enliven the look and function of
the transit hub. A main structure-in a "boomerang"
shape-has a double layer of fabric; atop is a solid
polytetra fluoroethylene (PTFE) glass fiber fabric for
a waterproof and snow-proof cover, and a PTFE open
mesh on the underside offers both reflection and
diffuse qualities to night lighting. Two other fabricclad canopies are straight-line bus queuing stations.
Structurflex LLC engineered, fabricated and
installed all three tensile-membrane canopies to
provide travelers weather protection from snow, rain
and sun. Mesh fabric on the underside keeps birds
from nesting or perching, while the PTFE-coated glass
fiber top transforms into a glowing landmark at night,
providing a beacon for visitors. The outcome matches
the architect's brief: a structure that is elegant, iconic
and functional.
This project won an Award of Excellence in IFAI's 2018
International Achievement Awards competition. -B.W.
