The steel construction of the 11 meters high 'zigzag' facade at EMC educational centre Rotterdam is ready for glass cladding.
On the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona the project V&A Medieval & Renaissance Galleries (London, United Kingdom), designed by MUMA Architects, has received the Structural Design of the Year award.
"Of all glass applications that were introduced at the renovation and the new building, the atrium roof of the central courtyard on the root location is the most iconic. The frameless glass roof, engineered and installed by Octatube."
Octatube has been nominated for the Dutch 'Bouwprijs' 2011 in the category building materials & -systems with the project Hogeschool INHolland in Delft.
The advanced glass details for the Daylit Gallery in the Victoria & Albert Museum, developed by Octatube, have been presented in the first of two Glass Construction issues in DETAIL magazine.
