  • Keywords: Deployable structures, realizations
Deployable grids have generated a lot of literature and theoretical proposals but till the moment only a few realizations. This is the reason for which is important the process that has concluded by erecting a building deployed from two parcels of 33 c.m. including structure, fabric cover and complementary elements till a total volume enclosed of 11.000 c.m. in the time that takes to hang these two parcels from a crane, deploy them by gravity load an anchor the lower points to the foundations and supports. We describe the basis of design as well as details of construction, process of building and final appearance of the whole.
