Watch Again Webinars | Giovanni De Mari - Simplicity is deceiving | Engineering one of the world's tallest prestressed rod facades

15th October 2020

In this webinar, our fantastic senior structural and façade engineer Giovanni De Mari alongside NBBJ master architect Kerry Hegedus speak about the complex engineering design behind one of the only two in the world, hybrid prestressed rod 15m high glass facades on Taikoo Place 2B in Hong Kong.

Giovanni explains the choices to use the hybrid prestressed rod façade, the challenges of typhoon loading, accommodating up to 240mm of movement in the curved corner panels and the integration of two openings in this sleek and stunningly deceiving simple façade.
