作为“一带一路”即现代丝绸之路的节点之一,西安老城根GPark商业街成为亚欧两洲间贸易、投资、金融、旅游及文化交流的重要枢纽。   经典时尚的建筑设计,是该项目从规划阶段开始的目标之一;而实现此目标的是中国西北地区首个ETFE(乙烯-四氟乙烯)天幕,其形状有如若干个细长蜂巢,令人印象深刻。   北京维克多福泰克建筑工程有限责任公司,使用其晶莹剔透的Texlon® ETFE系统,为超过23,000平方米的商业区提供了约15,000平方米的膜结构天幕,给来此休闲或消费的每位顾客带来耳目一新的环境体验。Texlon® ETFE系统这种创新建筑材料最大程度地降低了自然对该区域的影响,为商区内的穿行和放松创造出独特舒适的户外空间。   照片中精心打造的ETFE天幕尤为醒目,这归功于ETFE在结构方面的显著优势——不像玻璃那样需要较强的支撑结构。ETFE的重量只有玻璃的1%,因此轻便的钢结构即可支撑435块形状各异的膜结构气枕,包括29米的最长跨度——在满足视觉效果的同时,从根本上节约了建造成本。
