Glass roof Capital Land Suzhou (Jinji Lake)

Suzhou, China, 2017

The "Jinji Lake" development is a new district with a mix of high and low-rise buildings in the neighborhood of the beautiful Jinji lake. As a centrepiece of this new development a shopping and recreation center including a subway station was established. It is partly covered by a free-form sculptural glass roof, visually joining the two main parts of the building.
The roof follows the principles of a grid shell with zones that combine hanging roof and grid action. The roof is supported by tree-like columns and has partly open, transparent or colored glass panels which shall give the overall impression of the wings of a phoenix. This extensive roof rests on four independent building blocks and was constructed entirely without joints.
The challenge was to create an earthquake-proof design considering the roof loads affecting the building below.
