Challenge

The Crystal, a Sustainable Cities Initiative by Siemens, was opened in London on September 2012. It is the world’s largest exhibition on the future of cities, covering 2,000 sq metres, and it is hoped it will become a global hub for debate on sustainable urban living and development.

Wilkinson Eyre Architects was responsible for the dramatic crystal-shaped glazed structure with the varied interior spaces designed by fit-out architects Pringle Brandon Perkins+Will.

Solution

Lang+Fulton panels of Barrot grating were supplied for the mezzanine exhibition space. Each panel was a unique angular shape to add visual interest to the flooring. The wide bearing surface of the grating profile was chosen for its pedestrian comfort.
