The 5 roofs, designed to look like dove wings, were not achievable using conventional materials. The option of using concrete material measured over 1m in thickness. This would have resulted in far too much weight for the building to sustain. 

Customer: Holland Composites

The composite roof of Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Centre, Tel Aviv

Solico engineered this elegant alternative in composite materials, which provided the requirements of lightweight, acceptable thickness and aesthetics. 

Why are composites used here?

The specific weight of composites varies between 1.5 and 2.0 compared to 2.7 to 7.8 for aluminium and steel.

Slender constructions and seamless fa├žades are examples of aesthetics-driven design. These types of structures are impossible to construct with traditional materials.
