To tackle this challenge, a cable net assembly was ingeniously employed to cover all circulation routes between the buildings. The transparent net assembly not only provides reliable protection against precipitation but also allows abundant natural light to permeate the space.
The primary concern was to securely and durably transfer exceptionally high loads from the cable net construction to the foundations. The BESISTA® 2-540 heavy-duty tension bar systems emerged as the perfect solution for this particular application.
This impressive assembly incorporates tension bars with cover sleeves and castings for the timber compression struts. The conical castings, made from spheroidal graphite cast iron, were expertly designed and supplied for this project. The underlying principles guiding this innovative approach can be explored in-depth in the book "New Cast Structures in Architecture."
