This project was erected in a rugged topography which takes place above the city grounds, the development of the project for the soccer and football stadium for the Tec de Monterrey in Aguascalientes campus.

The Crystal in Copenhagen, Denmark by Dorte Mandrup A/S

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Article source: Dorte Mandrup A/S 

Nicknamed “The Crystal” because of its semi-translucent “skin” made out of polycarbonate that allows for the inner light to escape into the dark Copenhagen night, The Crystal has become somewhat of a local landmark. Flexibility and coherency are other keywords regarding The Crystal. The inner landscape is painted green, which creates a coherency that allows the various areas of the facility to seem visually and spatially connected – even when they are apart or on different levels. The building’s steel and timber structure is covered with opalescent polycarbonate panels with a low U-value. This translucent cover offers excellent daylight conditions.
