Thematic Seminar - Vector Foiltec roof solution for natural light and large space for architectural building
Vector Foiltec roof is an increasingly popular solution in architecture and construction. Flexibility, resistance to heat, fire, wind loads and especially being 1/100 times lighter than ordinary glass materials, ETFE materials are increasingly popular for projects designed by famous architects. . At the same time, this material provides a large number of solutions for architectural design, having a certain importance in the current situation of development and construction of architectural works in Vietnam and the world.
With that meaning and importance, the Faculty of Civil Engineering cooperates with experts and managers of the Vector Foiltec brand to conduct the seminar for students of Architecture, urban planning and construction of the faculty.
In the afternoon of November 15, 2021, the Architecture Department of Ton Duc Thang University (TDTU) organized a seminar on “Vector Foiltec roof solution for natural light and large space in architectural building”.
