Client: Locker Architectural (2010)
Leeds Metropolitan University & Yorkshire County Cricket Club have jointly commissioned a unique 'dual-use' higher education and sports facility that is occupied all year round. The Carnegie Pavilion provided Locker Architectural with an opportunity to expand their portfolio of rain screen, external cladding. They employed Tony Hogg Design to work with Alsop Architects and the building's engineers at Arup to design a way of producing and connecting 226 differently shaped 6 metre wide green triangles to the walls and roof of the building.
The three dimensional aspect of the work was well suited to THD's design and engineering skills. Many complicated geometrical details were combined to produce the desired architectural effect with an emphasis on standardization to reduce Locker's production costs to a minimum.
Phase one of installation was to locate and fix the 199 unique steel bases to the structural concrete slab and roof top steel frame of the building. The main contractor then applied the walls to the building to leave the base plates protruding for phase two, the construction and installation of each individually patterned triangle.
