Description of the applicationThe surface of the freely formed, three-dimensionally curved Skin consists of 1,270 highly reflective, precisely sized moldings made of 20mm thick PLEXIGLAS®. An individual shape was routed out of each sheet based on the digital model of the building. This shape served as a model for the spherical curve of the individual sheet. After thermoforming, holes were drilled and routing was performed to fasten and mark the individual parts.
