cable-suspended glass screen

London, Carpenter/Lowings Architecture & Design (2007)

 

Detailed design proposals were presented for this visual screen composed of cable-supported, laminated curved glass panels. Interlayer patches within the glass repeat the size and spacing of the corner fitting details to emphasize the floating quality of the screen and to set up a dynamic visual effect for passersby. This set of renderings was modelled in Rhino and rendered in Maxwell.

Design team: Luke Lowings, Iljana Eggert
