AE Interest: The curtain façade elements are made of acrylic glass with an undulating surface, measuring 1.8 meters in width by 11 meters in height – equal to the height of the building. The individual panels were first cast in flat sheets, then heated to 60 degrees Celsius and vacuum moulded to create the wave structure; The building is rounded in shape, but not quite circular, and is composed of two half-round concrete shells that are connected to one another; The oval form optimizes logistical processes by allowing trucks sufficient room for circulating in.
