Each single panel forms an independent unit. Basis is a rigid frame of hollow sections which is covered by a cable-supported ETFE-foil.

Description of the environmental conditions
The polygonal transparent curtain-wall façade which can be seen from far away prevents unwanted solar application of energy because the so protected shading louvers can be used even with strong wind and sunshine.
