An Umbraculum over a glaze facade 2 (113)

From a constructive point of view this façade solution is quite similar to the one the same architects resort in the office building in 22@. We just want to highlight the effectiveness that these baguettes may have if we compare them to those used in the before mentioned building.

The flat and deep section increases the sun protection effect while preserving some views. The apparently randomness on their distribution in each façade responds to the different angles with which the sun falls on depending on the orientation.
