Diba Tensile Architecture founded in 2005 was the first company specialized in design and fabrication of membrane and tensile structures in Iran. We have a unique approach to architecture, structure, and construction. We look at our projects as an integration between architecture and structure, and as we construct most of our projects, we are always sensitive about all the details and their execution, as well as their cost.
Even though we pay a significant amount of attention to the technological aspects of our projects, but as designers, we always put the human experience of the place as the center of our focus. We seek to make our designs in a way that the human s physical and psychological needs and expectations from a built environment to be responded in the spaces that we create. We believe this is what makes an architectural project timeless, and pleasant to all the people.
As we continue to grow and cover more scopes of services, we start to work under the name of a group of companies called DIBA, where each of our companies will be focused on one of the activities, the board members and the strategies all remain same as what it was since 2005.
Membrane structures also known as tensile structures, go back to the early ages, when humans had to seek shelter against wind, rain and the sun through living in tents. Since then even with advancements in science and technology, not only have these structures not become less important but also via combining beauty and elegance with functionality, they have gained an ever growing acclamation.
The very first membrane structure was built near the turn of the 19th century and via complex calculations in the 20th century, it was made possible for these structures to be known as a separate architectural field. With improvements in fabrics and joints and the introduction of lightweight structures as a necessity in the modern architecture, these structures were made more popular than ever.
There is a rich background in Fabric or Membrane Structures in our country which is still seen in our nomad tribes. Yet despite an old history and the wide practice of this method throughout the world, membrane structures have not been that well appreciated in Iran.
In terms of acculturating the practice and promoting the science of this field, Diba tensile Architecture, the first Iranian company with absolute expertise, was established in Tehran, Iran, in August 2005. So far the company has finished many projects in different cities of Iran.Go To Diba Tensile Architecture
