Live Project

Perimetral cladding of the former “Padiglione dell’abbigliamento” shopping centre in Repubblica Square, Turin.

The featuring element that this concept wants to achieve is a transparent protection which, at the same time, could conceal the building behind it from view.

In addition, the alternation of glass surfaces and metal surfaces is useful to create a special "wave" architectural effect. The protection - named Wall of Glass - consists of 109 panels, about 2 m wide and variable height from 8.1 to 11.8 m. Each panel consists of packages of glass slabs, obtained by superimposing 10mm clear glass "bricks" in a number ranging from 1 to 70, alternating with metal profiles of variable thickness between 10mm and 120mm. The scanning of glass packages / metal profiles determines eight types of panels. The aesthetic effect has been verified by combining with each other the various panels by means of computer simulations.
