Capitol Concerts at the US Capitol

FTL Design Engineering Studio as Designers and Engineers

FTL designed the original tensile bandshell over twenty years ago and the producers of the events decided to upgrade the facility with a larger one as the PBS, 'A Capitol Fourth' and 'National Memorial Day Concert' has become major televsion events. The design of the new structure uses a saddle shape to project and balance sound from the different musical ensembles including the entire National Symphony Orchestra. The roof membrane also acts as a light canvas for the lighting and video projection which is an intricate part of the television experience.
