Scope of work For RFR - Feasibility study of glass facade and 3D modelling of inner glass sail
As one of the biggest construction company in France, Bouygues had the objective to express their construction competence by advanced glass structures for their new headquarter in Paris. The outer façade contains insulated double curved glass panes with a tiny radius, whose feasibility was a longsome discussed question. The inner atrium is separated from the floors by a huge spherical glass sail.
