Client: Architen Landrell Associates (2013)
Tony Hogg Design worked with Architen Landrell to bring Zaha Hadid Architect's vision into reality on this complex structure. The detailing at the perimeter had to respect the constantly changing fabric angles to ensure smooth transitions and yet still allow an adjustable detail for tolerance and re-tensioning.
The nature of the tapered elliptical columns meant considerable design and detail development was required to create details that could be installed by lifting around the columns to install the 3 layers of membrane; inner lining, outer membrane and an insulation layer.
