Today the bucky lab was invited to the Bouwbeurs In Utrecht, the trade fair for the dutch building market.
On the booth of Ceno Tec a german company for textile architecture and membrane solutions which was part of the Nordrhein Westfalen stand in cooperation with the dutch german chamber of commerce we set up the Brams and Patricias Cardboard dome.

While attracting the public during the set up of the dome Dr. Bucky Lab was giving an insight of the course and the projects developed during the last semester. For him its was a little like coming home, his home city Leopoldshöhe is actually in Nordrhein Westfalen and all the people on the booth talked german as also dutch.

We made good contacts and had vivid discussions about the things we showed there and discussed also a dedicated semester with Ceno Tec, so maybe in the near future we are able to create some ETFE Pneus ...

Here some pictures of the fair and the dome that served well as an football arena ....

Thanks to Hartmut Drebing and Klaus Gipperich from Ceno Tec for their invitation and
Anna Gewering from the german-dutch chamber of commerce for the excellent organisation ...its was quite a job to get us in the hall during the fair with our dome.
