Long-term project with which we were associated in 2009 in the context of the redefinition of the project management team after a cessation of building works. The practice is making every effort to meet the architect’s expectations, defined beforehand by COOP HIMMELB(L)AU, to the finest detail. We have also studied specific issues with only partial success, such as crystal condensation, the definition of the crystal glazing both in the developable geometry of the glass and the effects of the formation into parallelograms of the structure and its impact on glazing.
