Skylight for Cirque du Soleil

STRUCTURAL GLASS
The enlargement of the workshop of the Cirque du Soleil enabled the integration of a reception hall on the 7th floor, the principal architectural element being a skylight in the form of an inverted cone 6,5 m in height fabricated from laminated conically shaped glass panel. The glazing elements are supported by semi-articulated point fixing clamps in the joints that were created specifically for this project. The frame, which is made of type 316 stainless steel, is positioned at the interior of the cone, and is therefore exposed to the elements.
